Overview

A wild and tangled crime adventure involving gangsters, Irish gypsies, and a dog that can't stop swallowing things, SNATCH is both hilarious and action-packed. Jewel thief Franky Four Fingers (Benicio Del Toro) is in London en route to New York, where he will deliver an 86-karat diamond to his boss, Avi (Dennis Farina). A compulsive gambler, Franky is tempted into an illegal boxing scam, becoming the unwitting suspect in a robbery committed by bumbling pawnshop owners Vinny (Robbie Gee), Sol (Lennie James), and their oaf-of-a-driver, Tyrone (Ade). Meanwhile, novice boxing promoter Turkish (Jason Statham), and his dim-witted partner, Tommy (Stephen Graham), move into the "big time" with twisted crime boss, Brick Top (Alan Ford), and Mickey, a mumbling, unhinged Irish gypsy boxer (Brad Pitt). Thrown into the proceedings are killers Bullet Tooth Tony (Vinnie Jones) and Boris the Blade (Rade Sherbedgia). A stylized work with a gritty urban soundtrack and a cast of intricately developed characters, SNATCH delivers superb and witty dialogue while depicting one of the more zany, complex diamond heists ever portrayed in film.

Notes:
Theatrical release: August 23, 2000 (U.K.); January 19, 2001, (U.S.). The budget for SNATCH was only $6 million. Shot in London, with principal photography for the film beginning in October of 1999. After Guy Ritchie's first feature, LOCK, STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS, Brad Pitt phoned the director and asked to be in his next movie. Pitt, who normally gets paid around $20 million for a film, agreed to a much smaller fee and the same trailer as the other actors. "He was one of the lads right from the start," said Ritchie about Pitt, "a top boy who doesn't mince around." Pitt's character, Mickey, was originally supposed to be a huge, overweight Irishman, but the part was altered somewhat when he signed on to the film. On the set, Ritchie devised a "fine system" to keep a tight ship: fining cast and crew for everything from having mobile phones, arriving late, taking naps during shooting, to being "cheeky" and unfunny, and moaning. "Unfortunately, I was one of the ones who suffered the most," said Ritchie of his system. Ritchie has said that casting was key: "The roles needed coarseness as well as credibility. It's no good getting Shakespearean actors to play violent cockney gang members." Scottish actor Ewan Bremner makes a cameo as Mullet. British electronica artist Goldie appears briefly as Lincoln. The film was originally titled DIAMONDS, but the title was taken by another film before production began, so Ritchie had to change it to SNATCH. The Austin Chronicle named SNATCH one of the 10 best films of 2000.
