re: Williamson scripts cant go wrong
6 December 2001 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Excellent black comedy with a terrific cast... Williamson's script is again sensational and this one should be up there with his more well known screen adaptions (Dons Party, The Club, etc) but unfortunatley has been fairly forgotten due to a lack availability.... Hargreaves is fantastic as the insecure rookie cop on his first day on the job and Cummins is also fantastic as his superior officer..... Fine performances all around, great direction and production also. Highly Reccomended
