Listen to me, Dale. What are you doing? Will you just look at me, please?
It's too late, Carol. There's nothing left.
How can you say that? Dale, I love you. We fit together.
Right, well, I'll try to remember that when I'm thinking about your mouth wrapped around Frank's cock.

Stellar performances from Guy Pierce (thankfully redeeming himself here after Time Machine) and Joel Edgerton - (best known for playing lovable Will on the TV show Secret Life of Us).
It's a smart, funny movie that keeps the action moving along at a satisfyingly snappy pace. However, the ending is somewhat disjointed and throughout the film you get the feeling that Scott Roberts had lots of good scenes in his head (and they ARE good) that he wanted to put on screen, but that they don't necessarily all work together.
Nonetheless it's a highly enjoyable movie in the Chopperesque genre of darkly funny gritty dramas that Australia is beginning to earn a well-deserved reputation for.
