Average Film, Below Average Ending.
19 August 2003 | by (Sydney Australia) – See all my reviews

I expected a lot walking into 'take away'. With it's 'Castle-like' plot-line and starring two great comedic actors (Vince Colosimo and Steven Curry), this film barely broke mediocre at the best of times.

However it got worse, as i was watching the film i was praying for a decent ending.. My prayers were not answered however, i left the cinema hoping they'd seen the movie and felt guilty enough to refund the price of admission.

* out of *****
