The Coolest Quotes From 'The Gentlemen'

Have you seen the hot new British crime thriller? If so, we want you to vote for the best The Gentlemen quotes. Writer/director Guy Ritchie first made a name for himself with crime movies like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Revolver, and Snatch. They were hard-boiled films featuring stylishly-staged violence and witty one liners. Richie eventually moved away from the genre in favor of big-budget blockbusters such as Sherlock Holmes and Disney's live-action Aladdin. In that sense, The Gentlemen is a return to his roots. 

Matthew McConaughey plays Mickey Pearson, an American expat living in London. He's built a very successful business peddling a certain illegal substance. When he decides to sell off that business, all kinds of mayhem ensues between his colleagues and rivals. That includes blackmail and bribery. Ritchie has assembled an impressive cast to back McConaughey up. The supporting actors are Colin Farrell, Michelle Dockery, Henry Golding, Charlie Hunnam, Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan, and, in a scene-stealing performance, Hugh Grant. 

The Gentlemen has all the elements fans of Guy Ritchie's early work expect, particularly some funny lines and quirky characters. 

Vote up the most memorable The Gentlemen quotes from the list below, regardless of which criminal character speaks them.
