Quotes

David Kennedy: It's Jenny. I want her and she wants Mick. I'm Georgie Burke and Mick's Dad. Now go.
Frances Kennedy: You are not George Burke. You are not your father. You are your father's son. I can't find words to express how proud I am of you. You're great. If she can't see that, she's not worthy of you. And if she can, she'll come around.

Not One Of Australia's Best, But...
10 October 2002 | by (Westcliff-On-Sea, Essex, England) – See all my reviews

Just when I thought I knew where this whimsical Australian embarrassing mother comedy was taking me, it threw me a curve ball that stopped me laughing and started me feeling - a curious juxtaposition that possibly would have worked better had the film been played either funny or straight.

There's plenty to enjoy along the way though: a performance from Sam Neill that proves what a good character actor he is, two of the best fun nuns I have seen on screen, some wonderful all too brief appearances from some waspish "ladies who lunch" and some fruity pantry explosions!

Not one of Australia's best, but streets ahead of anywhere else's worst.
