Review: 

I don't know what's wrong with the rest of you people - I could understand the Pikey just fine.

So Mr. Madonna made a movie starring Mr. Jennifer Aniston...I wonder if they ever double dated?

Pretty much the same drill as Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, except it has Hollywood stars - though I'm not sure that's a good thing. Snatch's starpower is almost distracting. One of the things that I liked the most about Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels was the fact that I had never seen any of these Brits before in my life, except for Sting of course, but he was hardly recognizable. But Snatch was like the fucking Golden Globes - even Spud from Trainspotting was in it!

Even so, I really liked it. It had pretty good pacing, didn't get bored or anything. I was even surprised by the ending...well a little bit at least. Funny how the good guys always come out on top in these films.

What is it with feeding people to wild pigs these days? Snatch, Hannibal, Dude, Where's My Car?...oh wait, those where ostriches...

I am hoping that Ritchie's next film is a bit different than the heist films of late - I would really like to see what he can do. He's gotten into a kind of Tarantino groove, not a good place to be stuck in, though I have high hopes for Kill Bill. Ritchie needs some box office, irrelevant as it may be. Of course it stars his wife, so people will go see it regardless.
