Crazy Credits

Near the beginning of the end credits; first some B/W stills of Andy and Penny's wedding are shown, followed by a transition into color stills, and then into live action shots as the two walk down from the altar. This ends with the rose petals on the carpet reversing and going back up into the air. See more »

User Reviews

A comedy that's rough around the edges but likable.
24 February 2002 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Among the films screened early on at the American Film Market 2002 in Feb., was "The Triggermen", a pleasant reminder that even with a relatively small budget, a movie can succeed if generously laced with invention and humor.

Two Brits lacking funds, Pete (Neil Morrissey) and Andy (Adrian Dunbar), are mistaken for two killers hired to bump off Ben Cutler (Pete Postlewaite) a Mob chieftain. The laughs come fast and often as one complication lands on top of another. Things are not helped when one of the so-called killers falls in love with Cutler's daughter, played by Claire Forlani.

Despite a few rough edges, director John Bradshaw brings in a likable movie I think should be high on most moviegoers have-to-see list.
