I bet you haven't seen a film as weird as this before!
5 November 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Sam and Gus are a strongman and his promoter with the sideshow. However, they begin to hear that there is a stronger strongman named "Crooked Mick" and they are determined to find out if it's true. Sam (the strongman) is particularly eager to see if there's anyone stronger than him--and based on what you've seen of his abilities so far, this doesn't seem possible!!

As they go off in search of Crooked Mick, you'll notice that there's a lot of excellent CGI work and the countryside looks a little more like Oz than Australia! In fact, the story goes from weird to weirder as it progresses--so weird that you just can't stop watching!!

The movie has a very professional quality about it and there's little not to love, though the film's ending wasn't quite as big a laugh as I might have hoped. There still is an awful lot to like about this very silly film.
