Class film

The film doesn't have much violence, just a bit of boxing and some gun violence. Brad Pitt's excellent performance me cum. Now the film isn't highly rated but that's because the people who rate films aren't British

Great role models

Dark Action Comedy

Snatch is one hell of a ride laden with snappy pacing and darkly hilarious dialogue. The timing and comedic pacing are among the best I have seen in films of this kind, with one interwoven set of characters and story blending seamlessly into another. The movie well made, acted and directed and is thoroughly entertaining. However, due to the frequent graphic violence and language this film is best saved for an exclusively adult audience. The film is not serious and the violence and language contribute to the overall comedic effect, but may still be too much for those under 18 or simply oversensitive to adult content.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
