Watchable - just
12 May 2003 | by (Sydney) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to score a freebie to this. Not lucky because I got to see a great film. I didn't. Lucky because I didn't waste my money. I try to support Australian films because when they're good, they're great. When a new comedy appears. I always hold out a faint hope that it might just be another Strictly Ballroom or Muriel's Wedding. Horseplay was far from it. The story is mostly watchable, but the characters are unlikeable, and often annoying. There is too much hysterical screaming. There's a suspect touch of misogyny in the portrayal of the female characters. The most interesting role is Jason Donovan's - a selfish airhead. Probably his best performance ever. Who would have thought?
