When Brad quits his job at a large cinema chain, to open his own picture theatre, his ex-boss sabotages the opening night by switching the Italian film with a non-subtitled version. Brad and his team hilariously improvise the dialogue to avert disaster.Written by
The inspiration for this film, was a live stage show (performed in various local theatres and cinemas), where Australian actors and comics, would stage funny voiceovers, on top of old B-Grade movies. The backdrop for this film, was an old Italian 'sword and sandal' epic from the 1960's named, "Hercules, Samson, Maciste, and Ursus: The Invincibles" (Ercole, Sansone, Maciste E Ursus: Gli Invincibili). Depending on the region, the original 1964 film, was released as "The Great Battle" (Le Grand Defi), "Battle of the Giants" (Combate dei Gigantes), "Triumph of the Giants" (Trionfo dei Gigantes), and also as, "Samson And His Mighty Challenge" (Sansone E La Sua Sfida Potente).

Still without doubt one of the funniest Australian films ever made. The comedy writing stands as some of the best ever done in this country and the movie has so many funny lines it is almost painful to watch from the laughter it induces.The fact that this movie still has not been released on DVD is mind-blowing.
The movie is of course based off the live show by Australian Comedy team Double Take who toured around Australia with this and other shows. Information about Double Take can be found at their website http://www.doubletake.com.au.
Perhaps if we all petition them we can get them to finally release this movie on DVD.
