Entertaining crime romantic comedy.
18 January 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This offering is another one in tradition of 'Lock, Stock', 'Snatch' and many more. If you haven't seen those movies, to sum it up there is a cast of colourful characters, most of them shady, who go through a chain of unusual situations with liberal use of equally colorful language. It helps if they are from the British Isles, colorful accents adding to the movie. This title is a drug/crime/romantic comedy. It doesn't offer any new material and mostly sits completely in the genre. It is well done with funny jokes, funny situations, a few good, original scenes, a fast moving plot and competent dialogue. It doesn't really stand out but if you like this sort of thing, it is entertaining. The Uncle character reminded me of Brick Top Polford from Snatch. Not as good but similar. Maybe it is becoming a prerequisite for a film in this genre.
