Trivia

The shopfront at which some scenes were filmed is actually a real shopping strip of about five shops in Alphington, Melbourne. However on the opposite side of the road is a railway line and train station so a 'Burgies' could not actually be built. See more »

A pleasant first attempt by Dave
16 August 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I hadn't planned on seeing this movie, however I wasn't disappointed when a friend dragged me along. Although there are no real surprises here, the guys do reasonably well with their obviously modest budget.

If you've seen the trailer you probably know what to expect from this type of movie and there's a pretty constant stream of jokes here, with a couple of classic moments, with the highpoint probably being an excellent flashback to what the guys were like in the 1980's. Also, I've read elsewhere that the ending was a disappointment, but I found it refreshingly different from what I had expected from this genre.

Overall, this movie wont change your life, but it's got enough laughs there to keep you entertained throughout.
