An absolute pearler
8 October 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A great film a little ripper Bruce Spence is at his hilarious best and really drives the film. And has a great supporting cast but the stand out of the film is the legendary Chad Morgan, the Sheik of Scrubby Creek an Australian country music legend his co starring role is hilarious worth seeing just for Chad's performance.It's just a shame this is the only film he made except for a short appearance in Newsfront.

The Whole cast does a great job with heaps of well known faces including that bloke who plays Beau in the Beaurepaires ads.A great little film about an outback wedding. Highly recommend!!!!
