Under the radar, comedy, not
20 March 2014 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

Here was another comedy that disappointed me. Why? Because it comes off as more a drama than a comedy. It's all too serious, and the music score doesn't help, neither does the unsettling jarring start, with a torture scene, in a film that goes back and forth. Wolf Creek's Phillips, someone who really doesn't act, plays an avid surfer, with the frizzy sandy hair to prove it, who gets dropped from the competition, on the account of a violent attack on another surfer, as I remember. His punishment sees him as a carer at a intellectual disabled facility. When going on a cruise, he's not suppose to, I think, taking two of the patients, Steady Eddy, bloody scary when he's angry, and Adrian somebody, the eye catching character who has a shaking condition, tourrettes too, I think. I'm 20 percent sure on it, he runs into some big trouble, where the start fits into it the story. I don't really see how this could of been intended sheerly as a comedy. It's way too serious. The filmmakers must of known, it had more dramatic purpose, or just give it the toss of a coin, and see how it evolves. I'm not saying it's bad. It still is very entertaining, partly thanks to Steady Eddy's input (and yes he can act) Adrian's world isn't all doom and gloom. He shares a screen kiss with Jo, model Chloe Maxwell, in a surprising nominated performance, as a sexy girl. thumbing it, who they pick up en route to the beach, who even scores better than the trying Phillips, who I must admit, got on my nerves a little. As a comedy, this movie doesn't work. As a comedy drama, it just gets by. Both criticisms here, aren't inspiring, or an invitation to a good movie.
