Christ! WTF is that...?!

Not a bad film though not as punchy as Guy Ritchies other gangster offerings ruined only by the casting of Hugh Grant.
I don't mind him in the role as a bumbling Uber middle class fop but in this one he's terrible.
His role would have been better in the hands of Matt King.

I haven't seen that one yet. But considering my favourite Guy Ritchie movie is Revolver, you can tell my taste is probably a bit off...

Probably all those munchie boxes and fried mars bars.

I agree, cracking movie and the actors did a damn convincing job. True it was packed with some massive stars, but they made the best of a decent script and the way it was shot with a very good period feel was excellent.

Not just the look, also the ways things were done. Much has been made of The Jackal's method of creating a cover personna but the British Police (Met SB?) are shown physically looking through the Passport Offices records. No "We'll do a computer search" here.

Well it was set in 1963 so I'd imagine the Passport Office systems might have been a trifle behind the curve then

Wasn’t he in that group Scouting For Girls?
 
Surely he was a navy brat, what with him being in Blue Peter?
I doubt he was ever in a 'gentleman's film'. Perhaps that was Peter Perves?
