#77 Snatch - Don't mess with Pikeys...and their dogs.

2000. dir. Guy Ritchie, starring Jason Statham, Brad Pitt, Alan Ford, Dennis Farina, Benicio Del Toro.

Seen it before? No.

Jason Statham is hot. I love his voice. I love his body. And in this movie he plays narrator as well as a boxing match promoter. The story starts with his narration but there are about a zillion other characters who get introduced at the beginning and it involved a diamond, a big diamond.

Brad Pitt is hot too, of course. You can't understand half the crap that comes out of his mouth (surely intentional). Even the subtitles didn't appear when Brad Pitt would talk. His role was part Fight Club and part Inglorious Basterds. You'll see why if you watch. Has Brad Pitt always acted like that? The answer would be no. Watch Thelma and Louise, Legends of the Fall, Mr. and Mrs. Smith or Interview with the Vampire and you'll know the difference.

Benicio Del Toro is a creepy looking guy. And unfortunately none of the movies I have seen him in have changed that opinion. Oh well.

Dennis Farina does a lot of swearing...a far cry from his Catholic studies at St. Michael in Old Town, yes, that's right folks, he went to school and church where I do.

See it again? Yes
Own it? Sure
Funniest part - the three incompetent thieves riding in the car
