Here's one of the worst Aussie films I've seen, a tasteless comedy, as bad as the dreck it unloads. Pity, cause the movie has very good performances, of course, the always reliable Cullen, and the very talented Kearney (Rikki And Pete) as a nerdy sort of garbo who falls for the hot Annesley, (who wouldn't?) where he sacrifices his safety, and of course, lies about his trade, but he has other problems too. Bigger guns, garbo competition have moved in, threatening his job, like his dorkier friend, who's mother is an agoraphobic. This new modernized big bastard of a machine has you saying "Now that's a real garbage truck". Probably the best sight in this film. The whole film is one non laugh fest, one bar scene which has a tipsy Kearney walk through two glass partitions, scored the only comic moment, in what is such a tastelessly stupid comedy, with moments of utter disbelief (What is this? moments), of course not as bad as the smell of rotten garbage. What really sucks about this, is how such a bad film does such injustice to a lot of good performances. Great opening soundtrack though, and the one isn't bad at the end, either.
