Good laughs!
25 August 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The people who bag this film about not being artistic film making or whatever are completely missing the point...this is a fun film directed at a certain audience who appreciate it for what it tries to do and that is provide some light humour and spoof Melbourne's multi cultured underworld a bit. People of European descent will appreciate much of the humour which has a bit of fun with Greeks, Italians, Turks etc. It's trashy and sleazy at times, but like one guy said, it's meant to be, much of these characters are not pleasant people! It's questionable whether international audiences will understand a lot of it as it's heavily influenced by Melbourne and it's sub-cultures (and most of the cameo's by local celebrities will be lost on an overseas audience). I had a lot of laughs with this movie, a fun, lightweight home brewed independent flick. Not bad fight sequences too.
