Storyline

Ray runs North London's most powerful criminal gang, and his nephew Jude is a polished and successful member. Jude's boyhood friend Jonny comes to Jude with an idea he wants to pitch to Ray; Jude is reluctant to mix friendship with business (and family), but he does arrange a meeting. Ray takes Jonny on (he uses his job as a courier to steal credit cards), but Jonny soon finds himself bored: the gang is more interested in goofing around and planning Ray's wedding than in fighting, havoc, and mayhem. Jonny wants violence, so he repeatedly tries to start trouble with the South London equivalent of Ray's gang. Will he succeed? If he does, will he find glory in war? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Don't listen to the people who say this film is bad
11 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film on a whim and I have to say I am glad I did! The cast is brilliant. The plot is simple yet effective and the humour is hillarious!

Frankly, this is the best film to ever come out of the UK bar classics like Monty Python and the Italian Job.

There are so many memorable scenes like the heist where they have all taken viagra, the stabbing in the pub and, of course, Denise Van Outen doing her bit with a cucumber.

What makes this film so good is the sub plots. While the main story ticks along the viewer can also follow each characters own mini story.

Watch it with an open mind though. It is not great cinema but does not pretend to be. Just enjoy the jokes and cast.
