good soundtrack / some bad acting
28 January 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I didn't mind this movie mainly due to the soundtrack. I saw this at the movies when it was released and the audience (mostly teens of course) were in stitches with this. Vince Colosimo's acting was poor,very poor. His line at the hospital where his mother lay in bed dying was a audience stealer." i don't know what's wrong with me,i cant stop crying. The doctor said you might die,what would he know,the prick". It had the audience in stitches. I haven't seen the movie in a while but i can still remember the lines and if not 100% accurate it's close.I wonder what Sigrid Thornton thought of Colosimo's acting.Colosimo himself would probably look back on this and laugh now. He has come a long way since this. This movie is due for release on DVD in the next couple of months. This movie had a very good soundtrack though and that's what saved it for mine.
