Goofs

When Graham is slowed down by the police, a white Mini is seen parked in the distance on the opposite side of the road, but isn't there in the next shot. The reason is that it is Sarah's Mini that is being pulled out of the ditch by the tow truck and the car should have not been in shot when Graham approached the crash scene. See more »

Charlie Delivers The Goods
19 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Charlie Boy" is a voodoo-type piece of wood, like a short totem poll, an object from Africa with powers to maim and kill those whom the owner wishes.

Here, the owner is "Graham Elder" (Leigh Lawson), whose uncle recently died and willed him his art work, paintings, sculptures and artifacts like this one from Africa. Graham's wife "Sarah" (Angela Bruce) picks him out among the collection to take home and names his "Charlie Boy." After a frightening "situation" with a crazed motorist, Graham and Sarah go home and kiddingly stick a knife into Charlie asking, in mock 1930s American gangster accent, to knock off that weirdo driver with the scar on his face. At the same time, we see scene with the latter being stabbed to death somewhere.

Well, without going into all the details, suffice to say this sort of thing begins to escalate until the Elder couple - who I thought were punks - begins to realize there might be something to Charlie more than meets the eye! For me, this was a satisfying ending as Graham and Sarahh were so annoying to me that I rooted for "Charlie" and was quite pleased with his efforts.
