'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

This movie starts out OK, there are a few funny one liners and some likable 'average guy' characters. However, it grows stale from there. the bit players are extremely underdeveloped and underutilized. There are also pointless unnecessary characters given pointless unnecessary screen time for no discernible reason or addition to the story. As for the storyline, halfway through it starts to go off the rails with unfunny overworked cliché's, and then as if that isn't bad enough, it gradually gets worse before ending itself on such an unbelievable, farcical and ridiculous note that you half expect aliens to land somewhere (it would be more believable than what actually happens). This movie could of been great if it wasn't so badly handled. Such a shame considering it started out OK.
