If you have ever lived in a share house then I reckon you'll immediately appreciate this movie.
I think Noah Taylor did a brilliant job in this movie, we need more like it. The director (Richard Lowenstein) did a great job of not making Noah look like Nick Cave, too much! I also loved the sound track to this movie..who would think of using Dr Who sound track in their movie...very funny.
Overall this movie from start to finish was very entertaining, almost a laugh a minute. All up a fantastic movie.
