United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2.4 DVD: it WILL NOT play on standard US DVD player. You need multi-region PAL/NTSC DVD player to view it in USA/Canada: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), WIDESCREEN (1.85:1), SYNOPSIS: Twin Town opens with wide sweeping shots of seaside Swansea; to be the place of action for the next one and a half hours. The serene setting with miles upon miles of old semi-detached housing is suddenly cleaved apart by two young lads tearing through the neighbourhood in a two tone BMW 525. Julian and Jeremy are in deep trouble. Their dysfunctional family scrapes together a living from their dole money and odd-jobs offered to their father. The boys have long since turned to drug abuse and car theft leading a happy-go-lucky life in downtown no-hoper city. In due course the plot thickens as the boys are out for revenge against wealthy club owner Bryn who is not particularly helpful in providing compensation when their father is hit by an accident when working on his premises. The boys are fairly imaginative when it comes to planning their strike, culminating in scenes which all dog-haters and karaoke loathers will love.

Without giving away to much the introduction of two bent policemen ( one welsh the other from Glasgow) kareokee and a mixture of murder (watch out for the dogs head) and sex and drugs brings the best out of all the cast.
The regional accent may cause a few problems innitially with a few of the jokes lost on those who do not understand the welsh humour, however even without taking this into account i have never met anyone who has not enjoyed this film ( i have already lost one copy to a friend)
sadly one of the origional shots involving a welsh farmer and a sheep was highly edited and i hope that the american version has not been edited inorder to make it politically correct.....
the highest recommendation i can give is that i origionally bought twin town at a cost of £15 approx $22) and when it disappeared i had no hesitation to go and purchase another copy ....buy it and you will see what i mean .
