Pretty funny, and a good performance

I saw this movie in the theater without knowing anything about it. I gotta say that when I saw it I was just tagging along to the movies and I didn't know what to expect. This was the first time I had seen Robert Carlyle in a movie and I thought his character and personality were brilliant from the start.
Gaz is broke, on welfare, lives in the projects, is behind on his child support and is threatened with losing his son to his ex-wife unless he can pull together 700 pounds (about $1100). But this is Sheffield, England -- once a boomtown but now a deadening city of shopping malls and garment mills, where the factories (and the guys that worked in them) are empty shells of themselves.
