mad mad black comedy
11 August 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

IMDb update: sad news is that Sam Genocchiio auteur of GET RICH QUICK was killed in a car accident on Sunday Sept 12 on Bondi Road Sydney. Sam was hit by a car as he crossed the road. His funeral was held Friday Sept 17. he was just 43. Married twice, he had a young son Max aged 10. Terrible news for independent film making in Sydney. Vale Sam xx.

Recent years have seen the low budget Aussie crime caper successfully launched in several variations across movie screens. It is essentially the low budget look and the very bent Aussie sense of humor that marks part of the appeal of this genre. This idea coupled with other revived hybrid ensemble themes like Rat Race (ex Mad Mad World) and Pulp Fiction have made their way into a loopy violent farce ironically called GET RICH QUICK. Made on a shoestring budget around Sydney and beaches by a large ensemble cast of fairly new 20-something Aussie actors, and helmed by Writer/Producer/Director Sam Genocchio, Get Rich Quick, offers ratbag crime buff comedy audiences several very loud bad taste laughs amid the criminal mayhem. The set up is from a robbery in reel one that sees the cash subsequently stolen, re stolen and misplaced, passing through practically everyone's grubby fingers. Acting statesmen like Malcolm Kennard and Marshall Napier are suitable scary as godfather heavies, with Paul Newman lookalike Jason Clarke a standout amid the appalling and funny goings on. Criminal misadventure and a full cast of dishonest characters make Get Rich Quick a bit Ealing-Aussie and a lot Corman-esquire. It is about as silly and dangerous as the distilled bastard child of all the above genres could suggest.
