Snatch

Question: Turkish is always going on about ''Ze German's''. Is he referring to the War?

Answer: Basically, yes. He says it once when he discovers Tommy is carrying a handgun, which are not at all common in England, where they are outlawed. More the kind of thing a Brit would expect from a war-hungry Nazi. Later on he refers to it again just to mess with Tommy.

Rooster of Doom

Question: Why does Boris not just chop Frankie's entire arm off the case instead of wrapping it in newspaper and taking the bloody stump with him?

Answer: It saves time, and it's a little twisted. Would you chase after a guy who you just saw cut off a dead guy's hand to get a briefcase, then just decided to take the hand with him?

Captain Defenestrator

Continuity mistake: Look closely at the characters list at the end titles: it reads "Gyspy Kids" instead of "Gypsy Kids".

Trivia: Brad Pitt almost turned down the role of Mickey O'Neil in this movie as director Guy Ritchie informed him that he would be playing a boxer, and feared being typecast as he had already played the same role in Fight Club (1999). Pitt took up the role anyway, as he desperately wanted to work with Ritchie.
