Nice little film that too few people have seen.
Certainly a twist, two very attractive young ladies (Minnie Driver and Mary McCormack) overhear a phone conversation about a heist in London, decide to extort money to be used for buying medical equipment for the hospital where Driver is a nurse. Trouble starts when they underestimate how dangerous the crooks are. People are shot, a car is blown up, but although hurt and wounded no one actually dies. There's really no deep message here, but they end up getting the money while the crooks get caught. Mostly it is just fun watching the bungling and the funny interplay between the two ladies, and Michael Gambon is good as the droll crime boss who finally orders, "Bring me their testicles in a jar!" Fat chance. :-)

I saw it on DVD and the picture is remarkably clear and sharp. The Dolby 5.1 sound is fairly well done also. If I were to compare it to other British comedies, I thought "Snatch" and "Trainspotting" were better, but this one is better than such films as "Full Monty", "Smoking Barrels", "Brassed Off."
