Excellent 'Little Aussie Battler' Movie
17 January 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This brings back memories of Sydney back in the '80s when I was growing up! Very well done, packed with laughs and lots of visual gags and spoofs of people from the home loan, building and banking industry. Anybody who has been through the experience of saving up to buy a new home for the family on limited finances should be able to relate to the movie.

A great cast of people bringing to life some very likable characters help bring you into the story. Many of the actors went on to become famous and well accomplished in the years to follow. It's funny seeing them so young in this movie!
