Show Synopsis

Following up on the critical drubbing of the Final Cut, the same cast and crew, TV comedians Dominic Anciano and Ray Burdis, along with Britpack hipsters Jonny Lee Miller, Jude Law, Rhys Ifans, and Sadie Frost, come together to make this crime comedy about guns, karaoke, and fart jokes.

Love and Laughter Among London Gangsters.

This is one of those enjoyable, funny, audacious and breath-of-fresh-air movies that keeps you on the edge of your seat with delight and laughter. With the bare bones of a script, the Cockney cast ad lib with sharp, quick wit that permeates the whole film, giving it freshness and fun.
Ray Kreed (Ray Winstone) and Sean (Sean Pertwee) are crime bosses of North and South London, each respecting the other's turf. That is until Jonny, a postman, (Jonny Lee Miller) comes along, persuading Jude (Jude Law) to ask his uncle Ray to give him a job in the gang. Jonny craves violence, and when he comes up against one of Sean's men, Matthew (Rhys Ifans) the trouble starts and escalates towards the surprising ending. If you want laughs, you've got them. Visual interest? It's there in those cheerful, tacky nightclubs and streets of London. A feeling of fresh cheekiness? Yep! There in spades.
There's a cartoon quality about this film. Gang members get blown up, punched senseless and still turn up only a plaster or two. And then there's the karaoke (how the gangsters let off steam), shamelessly stirring up the viewer's pleasure of seeing everyone enjoy themselves by being themselves and yet being entertaining at the same time. Ray Winstone is the glue but all the cast members help, it seems effortlessly, to give the film it's terrific shape. This film should not be missed.
