Jonny (Jonny Lee Miller) is an Eastender fed up with his boring job as a courier. When his best friend (Jude Law) offers him a job working for his uncle (Ray Winstone), a notorious gangland leader, Jonny jumps at the chance and is soon part of the most feared gang in North London. But Jonny hungers for a bigger slice of the pie and soon starts a feud with a feared South London crime gang.
It must have seemed like fun at the time: a group of mates got together to play gangsters, ran around London's streets waving guns, dishing out beatings and shouting profanities at the top of their mockney lungs. It's the kind of game that any group of lads with a camcorder and a six-pack might indulge in on a Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately, these particular mates happen to be famous, so the result--Love, Honour and Obey--actually saw the dark of cinemas.
Ray Winstone is Ray, head honcho of a North London crime outfit; Sean Pertwee is Sean, leader of the South London pack. Their organisations co-exist with a minimum of fuss, based on respect for each other's turf. Then Ray's nephew, Jude (Jude Law), introduces his mate, Jonny (Jonny Lee Miller), into the firm and the equilibrium goes up in gun smoke. Jonny's a hothead who disrespects Ray's rules and instigates a private feud with Matthew (Rhys Ifans), his opposite number in Sean's gang, and soon there are gun battles raging through the capital.
Perhaps directors Dominic Anciano and Ray Burdis regard their work as avant-garde, a deconstruction of the movie-making myth or a dissection of genre--or maybe they are just having a laugh at our expense. Either way the result is tortuous, egotistical film making. To be fair, Love, Honour and Obey is at least a step up from their last effort, Final Cut, in which much the same cast again paraded under their own names and made utter fools of themselves, but that's like saying the Zeebrugge ferry disaster wasn't as bad as the Titanic. Still, at least it's not all boys playing with their penis extensions: there's also Sadie Frost and Denise Van Outen. --Jamie GrahamSee all Product Description

1) its simplicity, there are no dramatic twists or moments in the film where you have to ask yourself "what the hell's going on?!" this does however make the film somewhat predictable, it has lost a star for this reason however.
2) excellent british cast. ray winstone, jude law, johnny lee miller, kathy burke, rhys ifans, etc. all are brilliant and the roles played by the operation good guys crew are fabulous. very well acted by all involved.
3) this film is so funny!! it works on the level that it never takes itself too seriously as a gangster film and this allows for some humourous slapstick comedy! i wouldn't call it a spoof though (to say it does to gangster films what 'scary movie' done to horror films is a bit wide of the mark) as it comes across as too avantgarde for that.
overall this is a class bit of film-making and although some people may not find it very rewarding in terms of the plot, it has enough laugh out loud moments to keep even the harshest of critics entertained for 90 mins.
So a load of well known British actors make a humorous tongue in cheek satire of the gangster genre, and many failed to get it. Working from a very basic plot and script, directors and writers Dominic Anciano and Ray Burdis gathered the likes of Ray Winstone, Sadie Frost, Jonny Lee Miller, Jude Law, Rhy Ifans, Kathy Burke and Sean Pertwee. And let them run with it. Creating a funny ad-libbed picture that the cast clearly enjoyed making, and really the viewers should be in on the joke as well. Anyone expecting some hard edged Brit gangster film are in for a big disappointment, there is violence and there are drugs, but nothing here is designed for shock value. This really is a fun movie, slyly poking the ribs of gangs and their bosses whilst cutely reminding all that families get involved as well. From the use of Viagra to karaoke sequences, Love, Honour and Obey is a British treasure that has been badly misunderstood. If the fact that the coup de grace at the finale is played out in fancy dress doesn't tell you that it has been taking the urine, well you have walked down the wrong garden path. 8/10
Love, Honour & Obey is a gangster movie following the progress of Johnny (Johnny Lee Miller) in joining his mate Jude's gang (Jude Law) headed up by Ray Kreed (Ray Winstone - who else). They run scams, they fight with South London and throughout it all Fat Alan gets stabbed, beaten up, drugged, forced to eat dog food, and blown up until he thinks it's about time he gets another line of work.
A London Gangster movie with an edge overlaid with some highly funny moments, particularly the boys disguised as arabs trying to knick a load of diamonds after taking some viagra. Clearly made on the cheap - why spend the wedge when you don't need to - and stuffed with cracking one liners and some karaoke performances that stun - Sean and Trevors "Fireball XL5" duet and the opening "Avenues and Alleyways" by the North London Mob musically punctuate a great movie.
Special moments include Kath & Ray (the other Ray) solving his erectile dysfunction and Fat Alan demonstrating his hand to hand combat skills and ending up in hospital. A raft of great performances in a film appeared in, written and directed by Dominic Anciano and Ray Burdis, writers of "Operation Good Guys" and "Final Cut".
I loved this film, I've watched it many times and the one liners never fail to make me laugh, especially Ray Kreed to the TV Soap Director "Shut up you, you're fat and I'll throw you in the river" - I suppose you had to be there.
This film begins with Jonny (Jonny Lee Miller), who works as a postman, becoming increasingly dissatisfied with his life. He asks finally his school friend Jude (Jude Law) to help him join the North London criminal gang run by his uncle Ray (Ray Winstone). And I will not say anything more about the story...
The cast includes many members of Primrose Hill set, as other than Jonny Lee Miller and Jude Law, already mentioned, we have here Rhys Ifans, Sadie Frost and Sean Pertwee. Both directors, Dominic Anciano and Ray Burdis also appear in the film.
This film is a comedy and it is clear that everybody involved in it had GREAT TIME playing in it. OK, granted, not all the jokes fly very high, as some of them concern the impotence problem of one of the characters, but it is an exception rather than the rule. In fact most of the dialogs are very funny, without being unnecessarily obscene and good one liners appear every minute or so. This film also features possibly the most hilarious gang war I saw, on the same level of humour as the one in this old 1963 French classic "Les tontons flingueurs"...)))
Another treasure of this film is the great soundtrack, mostly in form of really amazing karaoke...)))
And yet there also some more serious moments, which remind quite usefully that even if we make comedies about gangsters, the topic is not exactly funny in itself - some characters are tortured and others end by being killed in this film, in an ugly way...Read more ›
