A struggling widower businessman finds a new tax loophole offered in Australia to same sex couples. Needing a tax break, he cajoles his best friend, also a widower, into filing papers indicating they are a gay couple living together and assuring him that the small town (population 652) they live in will never have a clue. However, their return letter from the government pops open and the town busybody soon has it spread all over town without the two men's knowledge. Meanwhile, the letter tells the men that a tax inspector will be coming to investigate their claim. The two decide they have to learn to act gay, so they get lessons from a local hair dresser and visit a gay nightclub in Sydney. Written by

Paul Hogan again gives us a great lesson of tolerance and respect for the world around us - let it be the surrounding nature, animals, other culture or just other sexuality. Perhaps this is the best way to wake up the good qualities in us - by showing our silly fears of all that is different from us and by laughing at these fears. And Hogan does it in a very straight forward yet subtle way, without hurting anybody. The plot is quite simple, and we can foresee some expected difficulties the couple may meet on their way to succeed, and even though we know there should be a happy-end, we did enjoy every minute of the movie and it definitely left us in good humor and we will certainly watch it again when having a chance. Last but not least - all actors play really well.
