Storyline

Mob Boss is used to getting whatever he wants; he runs Southend, gets all the best women including the gorgeous, sought after Porsche The Sherbet Lemon and has one million pounds in dirty cash stashed in a briefcase at his home. However, nothing in this world comes without a price, and this weekend his boss and top-dog London Mobster, Jimmy The Gent is coming to collect the money which belongs to him. Meanwhile, reluctant ex-con Johnny The Glacier Mint is forced into pulling off a heist to get his hands on the cash himself. What none of them realize is that seven other dangerous criminals also have plans to get their hands on Jimmy's money and will do whatever it takes to get rich. Written by Memnok

Trivia

"Crikey Villains" was the working title of the film which, during post production, was officially changed to "Hard Boiled Sweets". This new title was agreed on due to the fact it not only reflected the final edit, overall style and content, but also celebrated the original influence hard-boiled fiction had in the writing process.

Enjoyable

Much better than it's IMDB rating suggests. I enjoyed this whilst tolerating its limitations. Didn't really expect the story to unfold in the way it did.
