Storyline

A British design executive, who seemingly has everything going for him has his life totally changed when a refrigerator falls from an aircraft and lands on his wife. He decides to getaway from it all by taking a trip to Australia. On his bus, he meets a wild group of eccentrics, including a woman who has stolen cash from her drug-dealing boy friend. As the movie moves along, we learn further that the executive is constantly accident-prone and drawn into unlikely situations. The film's title refers to a new design color that Roache is trying to develop. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Why make a 70's style Australian romance in 1999?
11 September 1999 | by (Sydney) – See all my reviews

The storyline starts with an British industrial chemist whose wife dies in unusual circumstances and then finds his life surrounded by strange disasters. The strangest is winning a ticket to Australia on a el cheapo bus tour through the outback with pack of 70's style Ocker stereotypes and token Asian.

As an Australian watching this film, my skin crawled all the way through as an archetypal English gent (Linus Roache) – reserved, emotionally constipated and good looking in the Hugh Grant style learns how to let go and release the creative spirit with the help of Grace(Danielle Cormack), an independent woman on the run from her partner, a drug dealing doctor.

With plenty of pacey set pieces you could be fooled into thinking that something is happening – it isn't, and the characters go nowhere in particular. A little like the aborted bus trip that drives(pun intended) the short storyline.

John Polson, noted for his remarkable performances as an actor in films such as `The Boys' and `Idiot Box' does a flip turn directing this embarrassing, tepid affair that will soon forgotten. The comedy was cheap and nasty and was worsened by the suspect use of Choung Dao as the `silent Asian' to shore up a flimsy script suffering from a drought of intellect and humour.

Score:

Puke factor: 4/5

Comedy factor: 1/5 (if you're over 55)

Value: 0/5
