Movie length sketch comedy
11 September 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I stumbled on this film accidentally after it had started, so there may have been some running points that I'd missed during the run of the movie. The film felt to me like a feature length sketch comedy show. The storyline is shown to us in intersecting segments, like a sequence of anecdotes, each with their own amusing or heartwarming finale. Most importantly though, there are enough characters and side plots to keep it from getting too stale.

The writing and acting (especially John Howard's) is all well done and had me laughing out loud many times throughout the show. So in my mind, it does rate high. Personally, I think it could have benefited if the story was told a bit smoother, rather than the usual CutToTheNextScene without having to build a brand new joke out of it.
