Crime Just Never Stops Paying For Guy Ritchie

With "RocknRolla," writer/director Guy Ritchie returns to the sort of gangster tale that shot him to fame with "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" and "Snatch," presenting a big, boisterous ensemble of lovable low-lifes doing anything they can to score a buck or rub out an enemy. While Guy stumbled with his last two flicks the romantic remake "Swept Away" starring his wife, Madonna, and the gambling thriller "Revolver". "RocknRolla" has the kind of manic energy that made audiences fall for the rogues of his earlier films. Guy, who turns 40 on Wednesday, was promoting "RocknRolla" in North America while wife Madonna continued her concert tour in Europe. Though the two are apart, Guy was quick to dismiss rumors that the relationship was on the rocks. As far as I'm concern, they seem to be fine!
