As a result, the actor’s gorgeous but aging face is partly hidden beneath a mess of combed-forward, early-90s Shaggy-style hair, which is absurd. As he lounges on a succession of horribly upholstered settees ingesting rails of drugs beside Roland Manookian, who plays Craig Rolfe and wears a long-haired wig, the two of them don’t evoke demi-monde criminals in their prime as Harry Enfield and Kathy Burke, who play Kevin and Perry, do. Maybe in the next installment, Stone will be seen smoking roll-ups under the bike sheds in a short-trousered school uniform. IMDB
The presence of Vinnie Jones in a minor part here emphasizes the franchise’s allegiance to Guy Richie’s Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, the ur-cockney-criminals film, in which Jones also appeared. Along with the presence of Black Box’s Ride on Time on the soundtrack, he’s also a funny reminder of the height of early rave and rage culture.
