15 November 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie made me smile. I like smiling. It made me smile for a lot of reasons. 1. because its a good heartfelt comedy that we seem to have forgotten how to make over in Oz. We used to be so good at it too. damn you government film bodies! 2. its great to see Paul hogan back, he's a likable guy. this is his best film since croc dundee(which isn't hard). Kenny the portaloo guy makes me smile too. I'd love to get a hug from a big lovable bear it would make you smile. Everyone in this is doing a great job, in front and behind the camera. we are soooooo good at comedy, and internationally people love our comedy. Why the hell aren't we making more comedy? buy it!
