Top Dog



Green Street geezer Leo Gregory repeats his hapless mockney turn from The Big I Am when falling foul of London mobsters ruled by Vincent Regan who – would you Adam’n’Eve it? – also happened to be gangster no.1 in The Big I Am. Not a lot new going on here then. Author Dougie Brimson wrote the two Green Street hooligan romps, so quality control is left to director Martin Kemp, who rather more memorably played Reggie to twin brother Gary’s Ronnie in The Krays. That was years before Guy Ritchie showed up with his callous malarkeys. The Fast Show nailed this dismal Britflick trend in their vintage skit It’s a Right Royal Barrel O’ Cockney Monkeys. So long after Lock/Stock and the barrel’s still being scraped.
