Great Little Film
30 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie at a test screening last weekend. At the time it was missing some music but looked to be complete. I really don't think I've laughed harder at a film since Borat. The script was really focused and wrung every laugh out of each situation. The acting on the whole was pretty good, in a laid back sort of way. The standouts were Matt Okine, Kevin Spink and Adam Fawns. However, the movie is completely stolen by Christian McCarty as Tangles, possibly the most politically incorrect character I have seen in a long time. Some of his lines had me cringing, especially his exchange with Holly Willis. Overall, this is a great film, and a major achievement considering this seems to be a very low budget film (on par with Clerks). I really hope this gets a release because it is better than most Australian "comedies" that have been made in the last 15 years.
