When jewel thief, Franky Four Fingers (Benicio Del Toro), takes a slight detour to London on route to delivering a huge stolen diamond to his boss in New York, he unwittingly sets off an avalanche of sinister and comic events that wind their way through the rough and tumble worlds of bare-knuckle boxing, Irish gypsies, pawn shops, pig farming and... a stray dog. Snatch, Guy Ritchie's brilliant follow up to his critically acclaimed Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, exposes us to his hip and helter-skelter view of London's gangster underbelly. Ritchie's characteristic fast-paced and constantly twisting story features a madcap ensemble cast of larger-than-life characters, including Jason Statham, an unlicensed boxing promoter; Stephen Graham, his bumbling Sidekick; Alan Ford, the local underworld kingpin; Dennis Farina, Franky's no-nonsense boss; Vinnie Jones, a legendary thug; Rade Sherbedgia, a psycho double-crossing Russian; and Brad Pitt, in a hilarious turn as a fast-talking gypsy bare-knuckle boxer.

Critics Consensus: Though perhaps a case of style over substance, Guy Ritchie's second crime caper is full of snappy dialogue, dark comedy, and interesting characters.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Snatch is a 2000 dark crime comedy directed by Guy Richie. Violence, darkly comic or otherwise, is a feature in almost every scene. Characters are killed through firearm violence, plastic bag asphyxiation. Bare-knuckle boxing scenes are extended, violent, and bloody. All of the characters are gangsters and criminals, most of whom drink, smoke, swear, and brawl on a continual basis. Characters use frequent racial, ethnic, and religious slurs. In this criminal world, the issue of law is nonexistent. "F--k" frequently used; "motherf--ker" and "c--t" also used. A brief scene in a bar includes topless dancers. A deck of playing cards with photos of bare-breasted women is seen. When it's believed that the dog in the room has swallowed the missing diamond, characters suggest opening up the dog with a knife in order to find the diamond.
