Storyline

Gina Katz is fired for being seven minutes late every morning, despite the best sales in the telemarketing firm. Refused entry to the bar where she went to drown her sorrow as inappropriately dressed, she spends her last cash on a 'power suit', and gets wined by two flashy businessmen- only to find they are conmen, brothers and former window-washers: assertive Ethan and timid Larsy Foster, looking for 'investors' to sell shares to in their empty ICT holding company 'Go Big', which she joins. Together they concentrate on the big fish: Hamish Fitz-Herbert, heir to one of Australia's largest fortunes, and gullible enough to bid $100,000,000 once their desperate efforts to meet him succeed; meanwhile Ethan and Gina become lovers. After a spectacular stock exchange launch and price sky-rise, they discover suspicious 'coincidences', and their own shares are locked in escrow for twelve months. Even if Hamish is an easy prey, are his model-girlfriend and dad's eyes Ian Patterson? Written by KGF Vissers

At times cliche, but exciting.
14 March 2004 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

'GoBig' is a surprise, straight to television feature length film about the dot com boom of the mid 1990s. The old favourite rags-to-riches-then-bust story with a twist.

Three penniless, brazen and perhaps slightly criminal 20-somethings invent a business on the basis of nothing, calling itself 'GoBig', a company that 'does whatever we want'. In order to get money into their company, they infiltrate the life of rich heir Hamish Fitz-Herbert (played by Alex Dimitriades) by stealing his mail and snubbing him at a gallery opening, and then attending his high school reunion.

After substantially outbidding him in a charity auction his interest is sufficiently stirred, and he requests a meeting with the CEOs of GoBig. Their flamboyant pitch of not very much inspires him to the dismay of his advisors, to invest one hundred million dollars in the corporation, and the buzz the company stirs up as they float on the stockmarket makes them all multi-millionaires overnight.

The production overall is very slick and the acting tight. The characters are well developed, and the casting is excellent. It is slightly marred, however, by some rather cliche treatments of money, selfishness and love.

All the same, 'GoBig' is an exciting and flamboyant piece that is intelligent, enjoyable and easy to watch. Recommended.
