    ''Where can I get a Pizza?''
    This Biopic, A story based of the Tragic and troubled life and career of John Simon Ritchie, known more widely by his Stage name Sid Vicious. Wild direction and a brutal story.

    Love may have killed Sid and Nancy, but we surely will never forget the two of them. Gary Oldman is at his very finest in this role and I doubt I will come across anything else that will surpass it.

    As a big Sid and Nancy fan I WANTED MORE!
    I wanted the heart ache and the pain. I wanted to be swept away. I wanted to cry for Nancy and sob for Sid. The ending scene was nice. Speeding away in a taxi cab and all but... I guess if you know the facts there is extreme reasonable doubt that Sid Vicious did not kill Nancy Spungen so...

    Pretty exhausting to watch Sid & Nancy act like junkie garbage for 2 hrs. but Oldman and Webb have a certain charisma. Highlights are the My Way fantasy performance with Sid blasting away the rich old audience, dinner with Nancy's family, and Sid dancing with some random kids to "Get Down Tonight". Had no idea this was one of Roger Deakins first big films as cinematographer.

    This in the hands of Danny Boyle and without Courtney Love would have been fantastic. Now its a lesson in bad acting och bad directing, really bad directing

    In fact, I reviewed this movie in this date. Fantastic story about Sid Vicious (bass player of Sex Pistols); how he, and his wife, lived the fame and the rock'n'roll! A little sad at the end, but it's a true story!

    Of course, Gary Oldman was perfect.

    I like how it makes such a "dangerous" artist seem so utterly boring.

    This is a study of an extremely self-destructive couple. I can understand Sid Vicious: He was a member of a groundbreaking punk band, before performing perhaps the most memorable cover of Frank Sinatra's My Way in 1978. But Nancy Spungen? She was pure ugliness, and even worse in real life compared to Chloe Webb's performance. If anything else, this abrasive film graphically shows the dregs of heroin addiction.

    If you want to see a film about The Sex Pistols, watch The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle and/or The Filth and the Fury.

    I didn't really know anything about Sid Vicious, Nancy Spungen, or even The Sex Pistols prior to watching this movie. But I knew about drugs, and I knew about love, and I knew about movies. "Drugs are bad" or something, and director Alex Cox did a great job at saying that without using it as a crutch or bias, but instead just using the camera as a mirror of this particular form of lifestyle. I went back and forth on…

    I was convinced to finally watch Sid & Nancy after my friend Greg deemed it as the worst movie he's ever seen. This was proclaimed mere minutes after watching The Room, I may add.

    I hate biopics by default. It's a genre that's never agreed with me, partially because there's so much pressure for the actors to live up to the reputation of whoever they're portraying, a goal they can only hope to achieve. The genre exists as Oscar-bait almost exclusively.…

    I usually argue that historical accuracy is irrelevant in a biopic. This film works as a counter argument, with all events in the film taking place in the wrong order as if to squeeze in every element of the sex pistols legacy, and British history of the late 70's. For example, there's a Thatcher campaign poster from the 1979 election in the background of a scene set in 1977; if a minor detail like that is irritating me, the film really isn't engaging enough.
