Mmm. 'Bad Eggs' taste good. I didn't reach for the jaffas til halfway through this satisfying story, when I took a breath and realised I was deeply in movie land, concerned for the safety of the main characters, letting the mood setting music lull me along, laughing til I snorted at all the jokes 'raising the eyebrow' at the standard movie cliches. A lifetime of movie watching (bought on by asthma maybe, or was it the other way around) as well as quality movie industry interviews while on radio, has certainly given Tony Martin the skills required to deliver a top view. Go and enjoy this Australian sense of humour and story telling from a deeply talented NZ born man, admirably supported by his TV experienced wife, setting a damned high bar for the local industry.
