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

I saw this movie today at a pre-release charity screening. I went on the strength that it was a charity screening with all proceeds going to charity. I wasn't sure whether I wanted to actually see this movie but I'm really glad I did because it was a laugh a minute. I went with my sister and mother and they had a ball.
While Paul Hogan was the main lead in this movie kudos to Michael Caton as the friend who decides to help a mate with his tax problems by pretending to be his gay lover. Michael was truly great in his role. Paul Hogan also does a good job and I'm glad to see him in this wonderful role after having made quite a few flops.
The cinema was packed out at the screening and I heard plenty of laughter during the show. Do yourself a favour and go see this little gem. It's definitely worth the ticket price.
