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

Bit of a bummer to comedy quota, yet still very entertaining
21 January 2014 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

I for one was disappointed here. I expected this to be way much funnier. I was expecting to laugh all through it, instead of frowning through most of it, cause of it's big lack of laughs, yet I still enjoyed it, anyways. When our wog boy, Giannopolous, an actor I've never found special, falls for a hot employee of an electoral office, Lucy Bell (Murder Call) who by the way is really good in this, he inadvertently ends up on t.v. as the world's biggest dole bludger. To clear his name, and win the heart of his one true love, he must hit back at the corrupt forces that have put him here. Hinch appears briefly, with those immortal words that have made him a legend, plus while doing a photo shoot in outback garb, he makes a funny reference to a famous Dundee character, the line that sticks out in this entertaining kick back movie, it's start in sepia with our wog boy as a kid, draws similarity to a short film I acted in. There are some nice sex scenes, and they don't involve Geraldine Turner, who states those same legendary words by Hinch in desperation, when sprung in her unlawful activities. Abi Tucker is pretty hot in this too. The naked sweating sex scene, her and Colosimo who plays Giannopolous's cousin, share, IS HOT. He's not the sharpest tool in the box, neither, but it kind of cute too. Just check his assortment of beauties he's done, pasted on his wall. And we have some action too. The Wog Boy is still worth watching, but for me, it ran low on laughs.
