Such a complete waste of time it seems appropriate to write a eulogy to the dear departed British crime caper.
A bizarre mixture of brutal violence and whimsical farce.
Superhumanly awful BBC bottom-feeder.
As a self-congratulatory exercise, Love Honour and Obey is perhaps without equal.
...suffers from just the sort of overindulgence that is sometimes associated with people who direct their own material.
The scriptwriters walk the fine line between comedy and drama with varying degrees of success.
Has less ain't-it-cool flash than Guy Ritchie's hyperkinetic Snatch, but more satiric soul.
Love, Honour and Obey feels more like a home video that some kids cooked up in their backyard.
The entire shebang rapidly deteriorates into a series of gags about flatulence and Viagra.
Embarrassingly jumpy shifts from humour to menace... one of the most incompetently made films of all time
What were they thinking?
Despite some rough patches, it's a pretty entertaining ride.
[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]"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]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.
Slightly corny, low budget English film and one I have watched so many times, a comedy slant on London Gangster's brought to you by an all star British cast. With music by Oasis and various comical kareoke songs, this film will have you laughing and wincing at the same time, my favourite watch over and over type of film.
I haven't seen many british gangster films, yet it seemed a little run of the mill, save for some arty flourishes. All the main actors were pretty good ones and they did their parts well. The editing wasn't great through, and it wasn't that it was bad it was just certain aspects that hurt the pacing quite some. It's still a good flick and I didn't feel like my time was wasted.
