Ewan McGregor and Colin Farrell play working class brothers Ian and Terry, owners of the eponymous boat that actually has little bearing on the story but sounds suitably pretentious. Terry has a serious gambling habit; Ian wants to move to Hollywood with posh actress girlfriend Hayley Atwell, who thinks he is much more successful than he is, so when their dodgy uncle (Tom Wilkinson) offers to bail them out in return for a little favour - just murdering someone - Ian doesn't hesitate, and drags poor Terry along for the ride.
The film is awful; much has been written about the unbelievable dialogue. Its all true. One to avoid.
