The Gentlemen

Director: Guy Ritchie
Year Released: 2020
Rating: 0.5

An American living in England (Matthew McConaughey) runs a multi-million dollar marijuana business - with hidden farms all over the place - but he wants to sell it, which leads all sorts of baddies wanting to take it from him (including Henry Golding and Jeremy Strong).  It's Ritchie back in British Mobster territory, and whoever let him write his own script made a big mistake: while loaded with star power (Colin Ferrell, Hugh Grant and Charlie Hunnam all figure prominently), it's horribly clunky and trying so, so hard to be "cool" and Politically-Incorrect (Strong and Grant's mincing is quite bad) instead of streamlined (it jumps around like it forgot to take its ADHD meds) and semi-coherent.  Ferrell's Coach turns out to be the most entertaining of the characters: he's a concerned teacher who looks after his boys, yes, but can get just as amoral as the rest of the louses.
