Young Steve


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 Peter

It's Sick Re
29 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

This movie is by far the funniest Australian movie ever made!!

First of all I want to say that that this is not Italian humor its Greek. I love seeing Steve as a little kid in his Tsolyia uniform eating lunch at school with the aussie kids calling him a wog it really cracks me up. Another great part is when Steve rips a burnout in his Valient with the music pumping. I think in order to really appreciate this movie you'd need to have either come from a wog family or grown up with wog friends

Your the man Nick G
