Storyline

Steve is a man who has it all, a successful career, wonderful children, beautiful home and a loving wife. However, returning to his home after work on his birthday, he finds his house deserted and darkened with almost all the lightbulbs missing, all easy access outside cut off and a videotape waiting for him. Playing that tape, he watches a bizarre and grueling recording in which his wife explains her grievance with him, her reasons for disappearing with the children and her revenge for how he treated her in a way he would never forget.

Like who really cares?
9 May 2003 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Whats wrong with this film isn't that de Heer has not lived up to the promise (or is that premise) that BAD BOY BUBBY offered. Its not Gary Sweet's lack of persuasive acting talents, its not even a directoral fault especially...its just that it doesn't damn well matter or even vaguely qualify as an "entertaining" near 2 hours!

Like, what's the point here? who cares about Alexandra's sexual dissatisfaction?...I can go to any suburb in Sydney and have this re-enacted. My question IS..with the wealth of talent this man HAS, why is he f------ around with a non-event of a storyline such as this?

It intrigues me....something the film had no hope of achieving!
