3. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005)

After this, Harry becomes the perfect patsy, and can't seem to rid himself of the body, the baggage of meeting an old crush (Michelle Monaghan), or his bad luck. Throw all this together with the fact that all these suspicious events seem to come straight out of a bad detective novel, and viewers will be kept on the edge of the edge of their seats while simultaneously laughing their heads off.

2. Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels (1998)



Four young men raise the money for Eddie to get involved in a card game where the stakes go higher than they can handle. The game of three card brag quickly gets out of control and they end up deeply in debt to the local gangster/porn store operator to the tune of 500,000 Pounds.

The boys come up with a way to get the money but its very risky. With twists and turns involving Pot growers, Burglers, Harry's collector and Professional Robbers the climax brings them all together and money quickly changes hands.

1. Snatch (2000)



This action-packed drama set in London, and directed by Guy Ritchie, follows an assortment of characters connected to each other by way of a diamond heist. The story's primary characters, Mickey [Brad Pitt] and Turkish [Jason Statham] carry much of the plot, with much of the "shucking and jiving" being offered by the other colorful characters. An indestructible Russian with a thing for knives and cheating, a trio of clumsy two-bit hustlers, and a man with four-fingers and briefcase [Benicio Del Toro] complete the hilarious ensemble cast. The accents are strong, and the action is quick, with multiple story lines setting the pace.



Thought of adding an extra one , a comedy in which Robert Downey starring is too good to be discarded.

Tropic Thunder (2008)



This movie starts with an war rescue film going behind schedule and millions of dollars in debt within the first few days of shooting. The director Damien Cockburn (Steve Coogan) takes some bad advice from the author of the book, John "Four Leaf" Tayback (Nick Nolte) and decides to shoot the film guerrilla-style. Tugg Speedman (Ben Stiller) gets kidnapped by a drug cartel named Flaming Dragon and when they make ransom demands they get his agent Rick Peck (Matthew McConaughey) who only wants to know if he has TiVo and producer Lee Grossman (Tom Cruise) who insults and threatens Flaming Dragon. The rescue attempt is made by his fellow actors who spend most of their time bickering among themselves. Kirk Lazarus (Robert Downey Jr.) keeps trying to be in charge while pretending to be an African American and only succeeds in making a fool of himself and offending Alpa Chino (Brandon Jackson). Jeff Portnoy (Jack Black) losses his "jelly beans" and has the DT's. The only person that is able to see past his own ego is Kevin Sandusky (Jay Baruchel) who is also the only actor who bothered to read the script.
