Storyline

Jack, Steve and Goat are East-End Spivs. They spend their time wheeling and dealing wherever and whenever they can. It's not until Jack and the others get involved with a guy called Villa, and they are landed with a big payday they have been waiting for, when they realise what a mess they are into. At the back of the lorry they have smuggled goods in, they find illigal immegrants. Most of them escape but they are left with 2 kids; a boy and a girl, and have to decide what to do with them...Are they going to look after them and feed them, clothe them, love them, etc. or are they going to leave them on the streets of East-End London.

spivs going to hit high
20 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

A thoroughly well produced film with Lead star KEN STOTT stealing the show! The touchy subject of human trafficking is handled with humour and respect. The film is a comedy with a definite black edge.The script is tight and the film well paced. The supporting cast are excellent well experienced actors whose characters make the plot believable and thought provoking. Look for big screen new-comer Jack Dee. He is a great surprise and it would have been great to have given him a stronger role. This film is the one to look out for and could become the next East is East. Good to see The British Film Industry have still got it. Who needs over inflated American Budgets if we can produce classics like this. More Spivs please.
