Something fresh in the crime genre

The movie engages yourself from the first seconds and until the end. Quick and with a good sense of humour. There is no one main character which you would be able to empathize. The whole movie is funny and incredible a combination of circumstances that make you smile.Also Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.
