Snatch the movie

I just watched Snatch.  And my god, it was an absolute stunner! I loved it from beginning to end and I even laughed out loud, which doesn’t happen too many times.  Brad Pitt is tremendous (as usual) and Vini Jones, the former Wimbledon football player (never looked like one to me), is very good too.  Actually they’re all pretty good!

And the script! Man, the script.  I’m leaving it all raw by the way.

Bullet Tooth Tony: You should never underestimate the predictability of stupidity.

Avi: Tony.
Bullet Tooth Tony: What?
Avi: Look in the dog.
Bullet Tooth Tony: What do you mean, “Look in the dog”?
Avi: I mean open him up.
Bullet Tooth Tony: That’s a bit strong! It’s not a fucking tin of baked beans! What do you mean “open him up”?

Brick Top: In the quiet words of the Virgin Mary… come again?

Vinny: Why are we stopped here? What’s wrong with that spot?
Tyrone: It’s too tight.
Vinny: Too tight? You could land a jumbo fucking jet in that.

[Tyrone just backed into Franky Four Fingers’ van]
Tyrone: I didn’t see it there.
Vinny: It’s a four ton truck, Tyrone. Its not as though its a bag of fucking peanuts, is it?
Tyrone: It was at a funny angle.
[All three turn and look back at the truck]
Vinny: It’s behind you Tyrone. Whenever you reverse, things come at you from behind.

Turkish: What’s happening with them sausages, Charlie?
Sausage Charlie: Five minutes, Turkish.
Turkish: It was two minutes five minutes ago.

Policeman: So, what you doin here?
Turkish: I’m taking the dog for a walk. What’s the problem?
Policeman: What’s in the car?
Turkish: Seats and a steering wheel.



[Doug sees four Jewish kids smoking]

Doug the Head: What are you doing?
Jewish Boy: [spits] It’s a free country isn’t it?
Doug the Head: Well it isn’t a free shop is it? So fuck off.

And the best of them all:

Avi: Eighty-six carats.
Rosebud: Where?
Avi: London.
Rosebud: London?
Avi: London.
Avi’s Colleague: London?
Avi: Yes, London. You know: fish, chips, cup ‘o tea, bad food, worse weather, Mary fucking Poppins… LONDON.

Buy this DVD.

    Hi,

    This movie is definitely one of my grand favorites. We watched it a few years back and really loved the dialogue and the performance of Brad Pitt (a really surprising role, not the usual ‘beau’ and his accent is absolutely awfully special) and Vinnie Jones and the rest as well.

    We specially liked the scene in the pub when Jones reacts to the buffoons’ threats with his ‘Desert Eagle .50’ and his wonderdul speech about ‘shrinking balls’. We used to watch it over and over again to catch all the subtleties of the dialogue…

    Hehe, no worries.

    Yeah I remember this Vinnie Jones dialogue. And just what: it’s on imdb:

    Bullet Tooth Tony: So, you are obviously the big dick. The men on the side of ya are your balls. There are two types of balls. There are big brave balls, and there are little mincey faggot balls.
    Vinny: These are your last words, so make them a prayer.
    Bullet Tooth Tony: Now, dicks have drive and clarity of vision, but they are not clever. They smell pussy and they want a piece of the action. And you thought you smelled some good old pussy, and have brought your two small mincey faggot balls along for a good old time. But you’ve got your parties mangled up. There’s no pussy here, just a dose that’ll make you wish you were born a woman. Like a prick, you are having second thoughts. You are shrinking, and your two little balls are shrinking with you. And the fact that you’ve got “Replica” written down the side of your gun…

    [Zoom in on the side of Sol’s gun, which indeed has “REPLICA” etched on the side; zoom out, as they sneak peeks at the sides of their guns]

    Bullet Tooth Tony: And the fact that I’ve got “Desert Eagle point five O”…

    [Withdraws his gun and puts it on the table]

    Bullet Tooth Tony: Written down the side of mine…

    [They look, zoom in on the side of his gun, which indeed has “DESERT EAGLE .50” etched on the side]

    Bullet Tooth Tony: Should precipitate your balls into shrinking, along with your presence. Now… Fuck off!

    Wonderful film. Lovely pigs too.

    sure I’m gonna get this on DVD. Things like this should be a must-watch. Yeah Brad Pitt is kinda a good actor. I really liked his role in Troy. I think no other actor could better do that role than himself.
