Guy Ritchie has never been one to pussyfoot around, and neither am I, so I’ll give it to you straight. The “c-word” is used a lot in this testosterone-driven flick. It’s a vulgar term that’s even more unbecoming when you consider the film’s title, but if you can get past that popular British slang word — and a bunch of other offensive stuff too, to be sure — you’ll see that Ritchie really is an equal-opportunity offender, and no one gets off easy in The GentlemenMatthew McConaughey plays a major weed dealer who is looking to cash out and sell his operation to the highest bidder. Charlie Hunnam plays his right-hand man, one who’s forced to deal with a nosy reporter (a hilarious Hugh Grant) who comes snooping around while McConaughey fends off a power-hungry gangster played by Henry Golding. The film co-stars Colin Farrell in a scene-stealing turn as a boxing coach who has taught his fighters how to use their unique athletic skills outside of the ring. The Gentlemen may not be a crime comedy on par with Ritchie’s early films Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, but it’ll satisfy fans of those films with its clever twists and turns. Just don’t say we didn’t warn you about the pottymouth on this movie. – Jeff Sneider
