Heard briefly on a TV in Bartlett's security booth is the famous "Ken Bruce has gone completely mad" commercial for Melbourne discount whitegoods outlet Ken Bruce. The commercial, created by Headly Gritter aka David Teitelbaum was a frequent reference point on The Late Show (1992). See more »
So why'd this bloke top himself?
They found some photos in the car. Let's just say the "respected magistrate" liked to... uh...
I'm trying to think of a legal term that has... you know, a sexual double-meaning?
'Perform acts with underage prostitutes'?
Is that a legal term?
Dunno, but it's the exact phrase I put on my Psychological Test under 'ambitions'.
There's someone behind me, isn't there? And it's the worst possible person it could be, isn't it?

There are a number of Australian movies around that tend to play up the typical Australian bloke or "sheila" image which quite frankly, make me want to curl up and die in embarrassment. (One of the previews I saw with this movie does nothing to make me think otherwise, a movie called Take Away). Then there are movies like Bad Eggs.
Bad Eggs tends not to try and have a laugh at us Aussies, rather, it aims (and for the most part, succeeds) in going for main stream comedy which could well work for international audiences.
If you can get past the so called "acting"(they are mostly stand up comedians, not thespians)you may end up enjoying a very witty movie, which contains quite a few sight gags, which are very funny. (The one in which the security guard is watching a send up of Who Wants to be a Millionaire? is quite hilarious)
"Imagine what you could do, with that cash bonanza of $478 dollars".
Even if you are not an Aussie, you should still find plenty to laugh at with this movie.
This is without doubt "Champagne comedy"
