Storyline

Four Jack-the-lads find themselves heavily - seriously heavily - in debt to an East End hard man and his enforcers after a crooked card game. Overhearing their neighbours in the next flat plotting to hold up a group of out-of-their-depth drug growers, our heros decide to stitch up the robbers in turn. In a way the confusion really starts when a pair of antique double-barrelled shotguns go missing in a completely different scam. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Big Chris's line to Dog as he slams his head in the car door is "Never, ever in my life, has anyone been as fucking rude to me, as you, Dog! Fucking bastard!" See more »

Goofs

When Rory Breaker's henchmen visit the dope house in the evening or at night (it's dark), they find J who has come around and screaming in pain. Which means that the police still hasn't come to the house. This is highly improbable, since there was a shooting there during the day. Dog's men had fired shots with the very loud Bren gun in two separate occasions, and Gloria also fired it after them, emptying out the magazine. Even if there was nobody else in the building, the shots would've been heard from at least a couple of blocks away, and the police would have come. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Bacon: Right. Let's sort the buyers from the spyers, the needy from the greedy, and those who trust me from the ones who don't, because if you can't see value here today, you're not up here shopping. You're up here shoplifting. You see these goods? Never seen daylight, moonlight, Israelite. Fanny by the gaslight. Take a bag, c'mon take a bag. I took a bag home last night. Cost me a lot more than ten pound, I can tell you. Anyone like jewelry? Look at that one there. Handmade in Italy, ...

20 February 2000 | by sdustonSee all my reviews

Incredibly funny and entertaining story of four young "criminals" out for big money. This is one of the most intelligently written stories I've ever seen. If you like to write screenplays, let this one take you for a spin. Very fast paced film with great editing techniques and a hilarious cast and storyline thats sure to entertain, as long as you can handle the accents. Great cinematography as well. This story will send you through a cork screw. See it once, then see it again to see what you missed.
