This movie is underrated, badly
23 December 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I'll starts by saying that this comedy is great, might be crude, but hey, this is my type of festive Christmas comedy for me. The characters remind me of the Simpsons, but flipped to be the Australian family from hell, with unusual antics which no normal family would encounter, ever!, especially how the dog gets torched by the Barbie, or the business with the chickens. I always liked Jack, as the mean grandpa, with a black heart against drugs and bugs, we know why we hates bugs (winking). Well, if you don't want to upset your Christmas pudding this Christmas, avoid this, but watch it AFTER Christmas pudding, you'll "crack" up with hysterics, it's like comparing Bad Santa but with a family situation and no security chief with a smarta** for a kid and, without the F word. This movie puts Australians back on our turf.

Rated M15+ for Aussies for Drugs, Sex, Violence and Language
