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.

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.

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.

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!!!!!

This is one funny movie.The characters are likeable in a nice gritty way.Comparisons? Try Abbbot & Costello-a "Carry-On..." movie and then toss in the 'Long Good Friday" (Yes, I know, it's supposed to joggle your memory, but it's a pretty accurate mix! No?) The gunman who has a problem "shooting... ha ha ha. and toss in the "Raise Bayonetts!" command in the shootout scene .... hilarious. In 98 mins. this movie does what has taken the Sopranos to do in what, two seasons. And this is funnier. Comparison to Lock-Stock... doesn't do this movie justification. And I LIKE Lock-Stock, but this is just plain abso-fan-@#$#$ing-lutely better!
Y'knowhatimean?
And Snatch, Lock-Stock's follow up by way of Fight Club, doesn't come close... no likeable characters there at all.
Back to this movie (LH&O) though, its Karaoke scenes are funny, Fireball XL-5, in particular, especially if you've ever seen it or other supermariovision programs.
nice!

This Film is a Rare Treat, I don't think I've ever seen anything like it. You can just tell the cast are having as much fun as the audience. Being that nearly all the dialogue is Adlibbed, and the Cast have all worked together before, the Outcome is a really well put-together - Classic Cockney Crime Caper. The "Fix Bayonett's" Scene is a classic example of the fun nature of the film, and one of the funniest scenes I've seen in a long time. The Cast are the Best Britain has to Offer. Jude Law, Jonny Lee Miller, Ray Winstone, it doesn't Get Much Better. If I was Brad Pitt, I'd have jumped aboard this Brilliant feature instead of the Guy Ritchie's "Snatch" which is bot up to Scratch when compared to "Love, Honour and Obey".

Bottom line, if you're just a Jude Law fan as many have mentioned, you will not enjoy this movie. This movie is for lovers of British cinema, whether it be blockbuster or independent. I'm a big fan of Britain and I was lucky enough to understand not only the jokes, but the history behind them that lend itself to the hilarity of it all. Rhys Ifans as the thugged out Welshman (not true for all Welsh) in the scene with the firebomb screaming his insults, only the British and their legions can truly know how funny that is. The entire North vs. South London theme was pretty funny, too. It goes to show that the British have a great sense humor regarding their bulldog spirit. A+ film. Not one for this side of the pond.
