Colin (Winstone) is in agony, shattered by his wife's (Whalley) infidelity. However, he has friends who do more than stand by -- they kidnap the wife's French lover and hold him prisoner so that Colin can restore his manhood with revenge. A kangaroo court takes place and as the situation escalates Loverboy's life hangs in the balance as Colin wrestles with revenge, remorse, grief and self pity, all the while egged on by his motley crew of friends who just want him to get on with it so they can get down the pub.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Think of 44 Inch Chest as a piece of chamber music and you can compensate for the thinness of its story and the lack of visual distinction.
Rotten: It's an interesting spectacle, but not enough to carry a movie.
Rotten: Is this a documentary about a porn professional? Or a gym rat? Neither. It's a stagy, half-entertaining, half-tedious acting competition between five excellent Englishmen.
Fresh: It's sometimes difficult to discern whether the filmmakers are dissecting male bonding, ritualized aggression and sexual anxiety or celebrating it.
Not as good as it should have been!
Some of the best British actors of the decade, but I was let down. The story started off well, but then it got downright starnge. It could have been a decent movie, but the writers tried too hard to turn it into a drama like Twelve Angry Men. However, they missed the mark. The acting was excellent, but I felt bad for the actors doing such a good job with a terrible story! I watched most of it until I got bored and put it on fastforward. The ending was a downer too!
