Roll the dice on low rolling story
2 December 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Yes, a Sherbet song inspired this movie, that has losers, Bottoms, an American carnival worker and his sidekick, Taylor, a boxer who split this scene, and head south to where else? Surfers Paradise. Only they hitch a ride with a homosexual mob guy, who they shouldn't of crossed, after he tries to get sexy with Taylor, who of course, knocks him out. They pick a up fifteen year old hitch hiker. You'll never guess who? She's has become one of Australia's most accompanied and respected actresses and this was her start. I love the zoom in shot on her face as she says "I'm really freaked out with civilization". You'll never guess where she's heading either, or worse, what she's gonna be. This movie is a bloody enjoyable funtastic romp, though, in no way, is it a good movie. It's rather a pretty poor movie. It's funny, but more so sad, that a lot of movies inspired from songs are poor. High points of the movie, exists in two scenes, one with the two taking sanctuary in a church, with Taylor, playing priest, spouting out some of the bible, as if these words are gonna lead them out of despair. The other scene that's a hoot has the two in a strip bar, where dancers, Wendy Hughes and Sandi Mcgregor, just atmosphere here, are being ogled by our oversexed Bottoms, and company as our gals mouth "Love to Love ya baby", the real voice lyrics in the background. Later, Bottoms, desperately wanting attention from these gals, lights up a dollar bill, at least it wasn't a hundred. Refer 2011's Sleeping Beauty. After, Bottoms gets roughed up for his troubles, while nice guy Taylor, who's uninviting line at the bar, has been used now in many movies, ends up bedding the two who take him for what he's got. It's also funny too, watching Bottoms trying to walk on water, drunk, and beaten up. I've viewed this flick a number of times. If you're an Aussie film lover, this is another one to put on your viewing list. Like it or lump it, you just have to accept it for what it is. Fun. And with Bottoms and Taylor (Bottoms, especially, the life of the film) behind the wheel, it's gonna be anything but dull.
