no laurel for Stanley
27 December 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This infantile Austalian film centers on the Richie Rich existence of the main character and his 'life' in Sydney being fussed over by Mother and trilling about in a Rolls Royce. Made during the dishonest film maker years of the 80s when this country had a tax break known infamously as "the 10BA clause" it attracted shyster producers to the biz and junk like this was churned out. The final nail in this coffin of film titles was the insulting and puerile Barry Humphries/Edna Everage farce LES PATTERSON SAVES THE WORLD where the Prime Minister of Australia walked out of the premiere and was ambushed by the media asking what he thought of the film "Well, that's the end of the 10ba clause" he said. And then it was all over. Professionals only please. And no more celluloid crap like STANLEY. In the last reel of STANLEY an extended 'comedy' sequence details the systematic destruction of a vintage style Rolls Royce, supposedly to make us commoners scream with laughter at the sight of wealth being crumpled...sort of like the wealthy matron in a 3 stooges short copping a pie in the face. That is the woeful level of this embarrassment.
