Screenplay: Guy Ritchie and Lionel Wigram, with Jeff Kleeman and David C. Wilson (based on the television series conceived by Sam Rolfe).

Twitter Capsule: I had the best cocktail last August, somewhere. SO tasty. Can't recall what was in it. Doesn't matter. Just yum.

VOR:   Almost destined to be disposable, but good on Ritchie & Co. for making it a chic, evanescent bauble instead of a frenetic shoot-em-'up like all the others. Still, a soap bubble.
