You don't have to be appreciative of Australian humour to absolutely love this movie. For those of you who don't know who Des Managan is, it really makes little difference.
I discovered this movie purely by chance and have spent the last five years trying to get a copy of it.
The pure comedic genius of the humour coupled with the protagonists love of cinema theatre - he leaves his boss with a simple presentation of "the bird" in visual form, makes this movie great.
It is endlessly quotable for us true geeks with such wonderful phrases as "geese mum I'm not gonna marry a guy with bigger tits than me" and the spoof performance of "oh yes I'm the great pretender" I cannot fault it in anyway and strongly suggest you watch it if you can get hold of a copy at all - this is an all time classic which all too few of us have had the pleasure of watching.
If you don't laugh til you wet yourself, I'll personally give you your money back...........
