In my dictionary, under 'lame', 'keyrap' & 'insulting', this title is listed as definition #1. Perhaps it's merely the 'semi-social', boarderline psycopath in me, but really, anyone enjoying this as comedy has a significantly warped semi-sense of humor. The entertainment value is ziltch. The social redeeming value is nil, except to offer an Australian example of why there's 'Hollywood', 'Bollywood' & 'Pine Wood' studios but never a 'Sydneywood', 'Brizzywood' or 'Perthwood'. The language alone is obnoxiously foul & the premise offensive. Unfortunately, it suits assbackwards Australia to perfection. Especially since 'A modern tale of love and litigation.' has the looks & feel of 1987, when certain political corrective measures had yet to be recognized. Wot a load!
