Stealin' Stones and Breakin' Bones
"We get murdered before we leave the building, and I imagine we get fed to the pigs." This is Turkish's(Jason Statham) response to Tommy(Stephen Graham) if their gypsy boxer Mickey(Brad Pitt) knocks out his opponent again. Turkish got into a bad situation with a very powerful gangster. This situation all started because Tommy let their prize boxer get into a fight with a gypsy over a caravan. This led to Mickey the gypsy being their new prize fighter, only he doesn't know how to take a fall like the other guy. This causes a big problem for Turkish who lost this very powerful a lot of money. While all of this is going on, there is a very big diamond that everyone else in the movie is trying to snatch. This includes some bumbling idiots, a Russian, a bullet dodger, and a powerful man from America. Unfortunately for all of them, a dog has swallowed this precious diamond and no one is able to find this dog. Leading everyone to believe each other are lying and only adds to the violence they inflict on each other. All this action eventually intertwines at the end of the movie and quite the shock is left for Turkish and his partner Tommy. 
The comedy is this movie comes from bad luck. Every single character suffers a big case of bad luck at least once in this movie. The lines are also what causes this movie to be so funny. Everyone is so sarcastic to the people asking idiotic questions and it'll have you almost in tears. Not to mention Brad Pitt's character who is barely understood by anyone in the movie. It's another great funny gangster movie similar to RocknRolla.
