David Parker tells the story of the time when clearing out a production office, coming across a pile of scripts forwarded on from Hollywood agents following the success of "Malcolm". On the front page of one of the rejected scripts, Nadia Tass had written across the front page "We've already done this. Pass." The script was titled "Forrest Gump". See more »
If you're not Australian you may find this movie a little strange, but extremely funny. It is great Australian humour set on a socially inept man, Malcolm (Colin Friels), and his love of trams. To make some extra cash Malcolm has some live in tenants who to say the least are very different to him.
As a Melburnian it was a pleasure to watch the trams, an icon of the city throughout this movie, and the familiar city scapes. This however was not the reason "Malcolm" was so good.
The acting in this film is spot on and the script and writing is wonderfully imaginative and original. If you like Australian comedy's rent it. If you've never seen an Australian comedy give it a go, if for nothing else but the superb soundtrack.
