Just don't take it too seriously!
30 August 2004 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this film. I thought it was good fun to watch, and just easy entertainment for a Friday night at the movies/DVD. The premise is easy to follow. Two Fish and Chip shop owners who hate eachother, find that they have to work out their differences to stop the construction of a Burgie's Burger's (An Hilarious spoof of Mcdonald's) right next door to their shops. The simple story includes hilarious jokes, a pretty enjoyable ending (most people complained about it, but I thought it was funny and unexpected), A bit of romance, Revenge, a traitor and much more. I have read bad reviews for this film, and I must say I found something in common. They were basically saying that it was unoriginal, stupid and had a predictable ending. Ok, well let me just say that most films these days are unoriginal, the comedy wasn't genius and I couldn't see that ending comming. So for once, just sit back, turn off your brain and settle down with some good old Australian Laughs! I recommend it mate!
