In this techno-future with a twist, a common domestic psycho-drama is not all it seems. Whether counseling session or virtual reality masochism, an enterprising therapist/technician makes an unexpected change in the program.
Paulie, an Italian man returns to his hometown of Adelaide, Australia after spending three years in a monastery. Upon returning home, he finds his buddies have not grown beyond where they were when he left. Together, they decide to open a café. Enter a rich young man, who is obsessed with Sylvester Stallone movies thus his nickname of Rocky, acts like a gangster with thugs in tow and a constantly belittled girlfriend. Obviously, the girl and Paulie hit it off and they must find a way out of Rocky's clutches. The film's title comes from the name of the café the trio decide on. Written by

I live in adelaide, I have been to rundle street many times. I have a lot of Italian friends myself, spank is a good good aussie flick. I am of a few out of my friends like australian films... Pity, there are too many of excellent ones out there.
Spank is a good, fun comedy about some italian young'uns that are trying to start up their own cafe in one of the busiest streets in Adelaide.
I can't really say much besides it being good with location of filming, acting, humor and the stereotyping of italians is just right.
Go see it, 10/10
