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>

god awful ! A piece of quirky s***e.
30 August 2003 | by (australia) – See all my reviews

This turgid film is one of the reasons why i think the recent fad of "Quirky" aussie "comedies" simply has got to end. Australians are not really a bunch of sentimentalised ockers, larrikins and louts. There are a few but not all of us are like that. I hope Polson will stick to festivals and not film making because his amateurish mis en scene is an embarrassment to his country's fine pedigree of producing genuine talent. A terrible film from a terrible film maker who is desperately trying to scrape the barrel of a terribly mediocre and overused genre. Hopefully the Siam Sun will set on such a crap genre and take this film with it !
