Love, Honour and Obey is a 2000 mock gangster film that was jointly directed, produced and written by Dominic Anciano and Ray Burdis (who also appears in the film) as a follow-up to their 1998 film Final Cut. The film stars Sadie Frost, Jonny Lee Miller, Jude Law, Ray Winstone, Kathy Burke, Sean Pertwee, Denise Van Outen and Rhys Ifans.
The storyline centres around Jonny who is working as a courier and becoming increasingly dissatisfied with his life. He asks long-running school friend Jude to help him into the North London criminal gang run by his uncle Ray. As Jonny gets more involved in the image of the criminal world, he starts making mistakes and through a mutual dislike for rival gangster Matthew inadvertently starts a war with the South London mob, headed up by Sean.
All the characters (except Maureen and Matthew played by Denise Van Outen and Rhys Ifans respectively) share their forename with the actors who play them, something that Dominic Anciano and Ray Burdis also did in their previous film. As with most films involving the Primrose Hill set, there are numerous links between the cast members. Sadie Frost appears alongside her husband Jude Law and her sister Holly Davidson; brothers Ray and Mark Burdis both appear in the film; Ray Burdis and Dominic Anciano have worked together throughout their careers; and Winstone, Burdis and Benson all appeared in Scum (1979). The film also features a cameo appearance from former East London boxer turned comedian, Ricky Grover.
