Strange they did a Russell Crowe movie and forgot to invite him
20 May 2008 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie is a little off-kilter, never outright funny and unless you take this as a bit of social commentary of actors and in particular Russell Crowe, has little to say. The character is way too self-important. Some of the gags have a long set up for little reward. Basically, it is about a Aussie movie actor, who leaves the industry to live in a quiet little seaside town, who is tracked down by a journalist doing a "where are they now?" piece. Nobody seems to care that he is still there days later following him around, as a regular piece in the magazine it would not budget for such a in-depth piece and other than curiosity could not see the attraction he has to the actor, Darren McWarren.

I hope I never make it to the location where it was shot as this form of seaside Victoria looks quite sad.

I did not like the arty discordant music either.

I hope this finds its market as I do not know who this was made for. Stay around after the credits for the final piece they tacked on where Darren McWarren speaks, it says volumes about the film and prophetically the Australian film industry.
