Disadvantages: Don't be silly
I love British gangster movies and think the British have the best humour so when you put it together what do you get? Snatch! This movie never fails to crack me up and there is just so much going on you never have a chance to get bored.
This 2000 crime film is set in the London criminal underground and is directed and written by British film maker Guy Ritchie. The film follows a similar theme to Guy Ritchie's first film, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels which includes some of the previous cast who played minor roles. The film is starring an array of talent including Brad Pitt, Jason Statham, Mike Reid, Vinnie Jones.
Unscrupulous boxing promoters, a picky boxer that who won't stay down, violent gangster bookmakers, a Russian gangster who likes too cut people up, incompetent amateur robbers, and supposedly Jewish jewelers and a priceless stolen diamond.
This is great stuff and if you haven't seen it go and find the DVD and watch it. They have done a great job of giving you all you want from a British gangster movie but with the right mix of comedy. The story is great fun and the dialogue is brilliant it's hard for any actor not shine. The cast are brilliant and each character is unique and interesting. It's really hard to say there is one outstanding performance because all the actors did a great job. This will have you glued to the screen and your sides will be bursting with laughter. I just love the fact there are so many characters in there different scenes who are kind of connected to each other and somehow it all come together at the end. Definatley one for your DVD collection.
Summary: If you want too laugh you need to watch this movie
