When a freak accident involving a dead magistrate lands them on the front page of the local paper, Ben and Mike are busted down to uniformed duties.

According to the DVD commentary, the night before the film began shooting, the Melbourne Herald Sun withdrew permission for the filmmakers to use their newspaper in the movie (a subeditor had complained that the fictional "Police Shoot Dead Man 12 Times" headline didn't make sense). The Herald Sun was changed to the non-existent Melbourne Tribune, the same newspaper Judith Lucy worked for in the earlier Mick Molloy comedy Crackerjack (2002). See more »

The characters, entities, events and scenes depicted in this film are fictitious. Any similarities to actual persons, living or dead, or to actual entities or events are purely coincidental. Except for the bit where dog bit the sprinkler. That really happened. See more »
This movie describes itself as "a deadly serious comedy", but to me it is more of a "comedic thriller" in that the thriller aspect tends to predominate, with some laughs thrown in. It's well made, the plot being quite convoluted, and suspense maintained. Set in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, it can be compared with the movie "You Can't Stop the Murders" which was set in New South Wales. This latter film had more laughs, and less of the thriller element - but both are good movies and worth viewing. Bad Eggs gets 7 out of 10 from me.
