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 »

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"
