"Love, Honour and Obey is a hilarious story of the North-versus-South London gangwars. Full of karaoke, Elvis Suits, and sexual mishaps to keep you laughing. With a great cast (including Jude Law!) attempting to be tough, and Jonny Lee Miller in a clown suit you will be rather amused throughout the film."
A film to live by!!

"What more can I say? One of the best films I have ever seen! I've watched this film about 50 times and I'll never get sick of it! This London Gangster film is riddled with hillarious one liners - although I think you need to be savvy with British humour to appreciate them. Not forgetting a very good story line, and some excellent directing. Watch out for 'Fat Allan'. His hands are like a deadly weapon, he is both feared and reviered. Quality!!!!!"
Jonny, Jude, and Sadie

"What happens when mobsters and hit men sing karaoke? That is exactly what you will find out in Love, Honour And Obey. Jonny Lee Miller plays Jonny, a guy with a boring job and a boring life. Jude Law plays Jude, Jonny's best friend and the nephew of local crime boss Ray, Ray Winstone. Jonny has a brilliant idea, he and Jude have been best friends since childhood, so he sould be allowed to join the family business. Ray agrees and tells Jude to watch Jonny. What ensues is a torrent of events involving Rhys Ifans, a member of another local crime family. Jonny makes it his goal to drive Matthew (Ifans) crazy, by messing up his car, killing his men, and all of this is done under the protection of Ray. This all works out well for Jonny because he does things to get in Rays good graces. Then Ray finds out that Jonny is playing games he shouldnt be, and things get ugly. The movie has very comedic moments, including scenes in Ray club where almost all of the characters perform karoake numbers, which arent badly sung. Some other memorable characters, are Kathy (Kathy Burke) who plays the wife of one of Rays henchmen (Ray Burdis). Kathy and Ray are having marital problems because Ray can't get it up. Dominic, the other henchman, tries to help by giving him advice. The advice includes things such as surprising Kathy by dressing in kinky leather ensembles and waiting for her to come home. The outcome of these advised coups are very amusing. Sadie Frost, Jude Laws real life wife, plays Sadie, Ray Winstones fiance. She wants to get married, but you can imagine how hard it is to convince a crime boss to tie the knot, especially when he is convinced that you are strapping it on with the director of your TV series. This movie is a must for anyone who is interested in British comedy or if you just need an escape the usual droll that Hollywood schocks out."
This is a top UK gangster movie

"I've seen this film ten times and I will watch it again and again. This movie is pure brilliance, the very original concept of gangsters putting the Karaoke before business, the humour, and yes the violence all come together to make this film, for me, stand out from all the same old same old being rolled off the Hollywood production line. It is British at its best and wackiest, like all the main actors using their own first names. However, what I will say is that I don't think it would be appreciated across the pond because I just don't think they will 'get it'. To sum up IT'S MONTY PYPHON MEETS THE GODFATHER DOWN THE GREEN MAN FOR A GOOD OLD SING-SONG."
