Sundancers in search of a good time on the weekend had to to look no further than the rollicking criminal caper, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. A huge success in Britain, Guy Ritchie's first feature film owes much to Quentin Tarantino and the "Trainspotting" crew. It's not original, but it is fun. This complicated screwball gangster comedy uses quirky camera work and an even quirkier cast to full effect. In a festival marked by gloomy discourses on dysfunctional relationships, "Lock, Stock" provided welcome comic relief.
