The best from The Hire
24 May 2003 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

For me the best short from The Hire-series, season 1. Guy Ritchie directs his wife Madonna and it is definitely his style, seen in 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels' and 'Snatch'. Husband and wife should have stopped after this one instead of making 'Swept Away'.

The story: Madonna is a very arrogant star and The Driver has to take her to some event and he has to lose some followers, like her manager.

With more funny moments then I have seen in the others, a great ending, and music very well used, this is my favorite.
