I originally read this story as a novel and I liked the brash humor of it.. The movie, however, is an embarrassment to the Aussie film culture. Everyone tries too hard for laughs and the gags flop like a fish out of water. The production standards are pitiful... it looks like the movie was made for a $1000 and they had change left over. There are some good Aussie actors in this and they must now look on this dud and cringe. On the DVD version there is included a stage version of the story... it's actually more watchable than the movie....... This nightmare belongs in a Melbourne fringe art show.... which is pretty much near where it originated. yuk!
