Tony Barry at his best as the lovable larrikin Lennie Cahill
Michael Drew from Sydney, Australia
6 December 2003
This is the sort of comedy that Australians make well. The hero as always
a villain, the bad guys are the cops who persecute them by investigating
their criminal activity.
Tony Barry is superb as the dying criminal Lennie keen to purge his
conscience of a crime that resulted in unanticipated and tragic events.
nemesis, soon-to-be-retired cop "Twink", played competently as always by
Chris Haywood is the perfect foil, as he too is determined to know the
about this crime before he goes. Both lament the passing of old times,
a cop and a crook can at least have some grudging respect for each
Some of the veteran support cast members are wonderful, obviously
the opportunity to ham it up.
The script is tighter than we sometimes expect from Aussie comedy and it
ties together into a neat little package. This film won't change the way
look at the world, but it will amuse and entertain.
