'The Nugget' is a tale about a group of three roadworkers who stumble upon the world's biggest nugget, and become instant millionaires - or so they think. The roadworkers are mates from way back, and each weekend they go out to an old goldmining site hoping to strike it rich. Each weekend they come back with nothing but a hangover. But then everything changes when they discover the world's biggest nugget - worth many millions of dollars. Written by

The Nugget is a feel good Aussie movie about a few mates. Nothing complex, nothing fancy, just a few blokes finding out why it's good to have mates.
Many people have criticised the film for jokes which fall flat, and it does have a few shockers. There are also some real gems in there though, which make it well worth sitting through those that don't go down so well. The 'simple' script also serves to enhance the movie - after all, they're simple blokes. Enjoy The Nugget for what it is and you'll have a good laugh.
Enough chat, let's have a beer.
