Movie Info

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. The film opens with bored postman Jonny (Lee Miller) in clown-face reminiscing about his mate Jude (Law), who introduced him to his crime lord uncle Ray Kreed (Ray Winstone). Though Jonny is hungry for some action, Ray is more interested in karaoke and his impeding nuptials with soap star Sadie (Frost). Bored, Jonny, along with Jude, bungle a credit card scam and then later really screw up by robbing high-grade blow from a South London gang headed by Sean (Sean Pertwee) and his sidekick Matthew (Ifans). Soon a gang war ensues.

    [font=Century Gothic]In "Love, Honor and Obey", Jonny(Jonny Lee Miller) is frustrated being a postal worker and watching overweight men eat their lunch. He is especially depressed at the thought of doing the same for the next twenty years. So, in order to spice up his life, he seeks to sign on with the mob of Ray(Ray Winstone) whose nephew, Jude(Jude Law), he was childhood pals with.(Ray is also engaged to be married to Sadie(Sadie Frost), a soap opera star.) As an initiation, Jonny has an idea for a credit card scam...[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Love, Honor and Obey" starts out as silly(there is a plotline concerning a character's impotence) but then turns serious, darker and admittedly better during the second half. This makes sense, considering we are seeing everything through the eyes of Jonny, who as narrators go, is quite unreliable. [/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]Oh, and Ray Winstone is excellent as always, especially when he is singing karaoke.[/font]

    I really thought this was an extremely fun movie. It's very much in the same reign of Guy Ritchie's British crime films. It was an excellent blend of comedy and drama, with a ton of street-wise characters. There was a lot of great acting, especially from Ray Winstone and Jude Law.

    aint seen rhys ifans in anything before and he's awesome. ray winstone goes without saying... all the cast are pretty effortless and not in a useless at acting sense. in a greased cog in a machine sense. am i talking bollocks? its mixture of brutal violence and genuine laugh out loud moments make this a must see!

    <b>Director:</b> Dominic Anciano & Ray Burdis <b>Country:</b> UK <b>Genre:</b> Comedy / Drama / Crime <b>Length:</b> 103 min <center><a href="http://tinypic.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i41.tinypic.com/1hovbd.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a></center> Ray runs North London's most powerful criminal gang, and his nephew Jude is a polished and successful member. Jude's boyhood friend Jonny comes to Jude with an idea he wants to pitch to Ray; Jude is reluctant to mix friendship with business (and family), but he does arrange a meeting. Ray takes Jonny on (he uses his job as a courier to steal credit cards), but Jonny soon finds himself bored: the gang is more interested in goofing around and planning Ray's wedding than in fighting, havoc, and mayhem. Jonny wants violence, so he repeatedly tries to start trouble with the South London equivalent of Ray's gang. Will he succeed? If he does, will he find glory in war?
