Film: The Bank Job

A 2008 British movie, Very Loosely Based on a True Story, namely the 1971 Baker Street bank robbery. Set in 1971, it stars Jason Statham, Saffron Burrows and Keeley Hawes, along with half the Hey, It's That Guy! actors in Britain.

Basically, MI5 hire a bunch of criminals to rob a safety deposit vault that contains a bunch of compromising pictures of a senior royal (Princess Margaret in the movie, but possibly not her in real life. You can't libel the dead). Things don't exactly adhere to plan — there's a porn baron and corrupt coppers involved...

Definitely not one for the kiddies.
