Storyline

Christopher Skase was a white collar fugitive until Australia decided to launch an unofficial chase to get Skase. The man who owned television networks, hotels and companies went broke and fled the country to Spain. Peter Dellasandro assembled a team of five people, including Skase's head of security to travel to Majorica to bring Skase back to Australia. The problem is, before they can go, they have to win over the board of Qintex, Skase's former company. Written by Matt Gilbertson

Oh, how I avoided this film. I finally sat down to watch it and I'm glad I did. Because at the end of the day, despite the apparent cheap shots that could have been taken, this is a well crafted comedy that has it's tongue so firmly planted in it's cheek that it is obvious here that the intent is to laugh at the absurdity of the original chase for Skase and Australia's single mindedness at returning the 'scoundrel to justice.' That was never going to happen. So what is Let's Get Skase?The next best thing. Two hours of nonsense looking back at the saga, with all the right liberties taken storywise. In short, this films go right over the top, culminating in a Rambo style raids on good ol' Christopher's island fortress in Majorca, by Dellasandro and his team of merry idiots. Excellent performances, great script and true understanding of the genre by the director. One of Australia's better attempts at comedy. I only wish it was true.
