Alice Bell was Emily Barclay's body double for the film. Driving, texting and snorting cornflour instead of speed. See more »
I knew the mother, she was mad. I knew the grandmother, she was madder. It's genetics I reckon. That's the only thing I can come up with. You just can't get clean water from a dirty tank.

I was very excited to see this film after all the hype, i was also looking forward to a funny, insightful portrait of 'SUBURBAN MAYHEM' especially having grown up in a place like the one depicted in the film.
I was extremely disappointed. I actually found myself bored for the entire length of the film and it only runs for 90mins. I really can't understand how people are saying this is thrilling or a fantastic Austalian film. It is actually very weak, boring with not much mayhem.
I thought Barclay was outstanding but the script and direction was sloppy, the 'documentary' format annoyed me, totally unnecessary.
I can see what was trying to be achieved but the script lacked a real depth and direction and i found the characters to be two dimensional.
I don't know who is at fault here, the direction or the writing, maybe it was both - but somebody missed the mark completely.
