Hogan & Kenny, A class act!
29 December 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well, if you can get to see this little known Aussie movie I suggest you do, it's not 'earth shattering' it's not 'Hollywood' (thank god!) but I for one found it to be a well made, mostly very funny, entertaining and a sometimes poignant hour thirty!.

Dad/Son road trip movies are not that common, thankfully the chemistry shown on screen by the ever excellent (but hardly seen) one liner master, Paul Hogan and of course the always likable Shane Jacobson ('Kenny') produce some truly classic moments, no spoilers here but they are 'LOL' funny together and when the mood requires, somber together.

It's a hoot, not sure why some 'reviewers' have such a downer on it? oh, Morgan Griffin as Jess was ripper mate!!!

See it if you can.
