Storyline

Ben Kinnear and Mike Paddock are detectives with the Melbourne Police force's elite Zero Tolerance Unit. 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. But when Ben discovers a strange link between the accident and the business affairs of a shady casino boss he and Mike have been investigating, the pair decide they can no longer turn a blind eye to the corruption rife amongst their own colleagues. Written by David Helvellin

Not your typical "Aussie Movie"
29 July 2003 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Just saw "Bad Eggs". It was a refreshing movie, (Compared to other Australian attempts at movie making) and the opening shots of the car "driven" by a dead person had the whole cinema laughing their guts out. You are watching wondering till almost the very end as to "who done it", some new actors, and some that that have probably been in every Aussie movie made...

Well worth watching, 7 out of 10 :)
