Brilliant!
17 June 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This film was a typical p***take comedy. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was funny, sad and typically Australian. My mum cried all the way through it. My dad was pleasantly surprised (he doesn't watch TV much). I think it was really a great film that everyone should see.
