Steve liked Celia from the moment they met. But following a clash with her boss, Raelene Beagle-Thorpe, Minister for employment, he finds himself on national television branded as Australia's biggest dole bludger. Now Steve has to prove to Celia, to himself, and to the whole country, that there's more to him than meets the eye. With a little help from his friends, he might just do it. As long as he can keep his best friend Frank away for Annie, Celia's little sister... and protect Frank's cousin Dom, from Tony, the insane local crime lord to whom Dom owes money... and prevent Theo, and enterprising neighbour, from throwing himself in front of a car to collect insurance. Mate there's just got to be an easier way to meet chicks. Written by
Interesting and funny shot at Australia, more of what we need.
I enjoyed this movie just like any Aussie movie with a tale told through sarcasm. I expected this movie to follow Nick's TV shows such as "Acropolis Now" but found that it was a shot at the Government and at Ethic Australia, better known as Mulitcultural Society.
Anyone who has grown up with people that have parents or grand parents from Europe will get the jokes and understand how funny this movie is. The Yugoslav murder of the English language is so true and very funny. The mix of Italians and Greeks gags about mixing up English saying is also hilarious.
I loved this movie as you can tell and still 6 years on as funny as ever. This movie was not made to be taken seriously it's about entertainment and taking you away from everyday life. I highly rate this movie if you enjoy a laugh.
