A slice of Sydneysyder reality we don't need
13 February 2014 | by videorama-759-859391See all my reviews

This may be an all too real film, but this slice of reality in the lives of a group of twenty something, with a groom to be, getting cold feet and finding out his brides been cheating on her, is in no way original, but all so captivating. The thing with this documentary type film is that we don't care about anybody. They aren't interesting to us, yet are in all too realistic situations. You wouldn't want to bump into any of these people, particular the big narcissistic oaf, who's so disrespectful to women, and repulsive, a reminder of some loud crass people you know. Yet having this oaf on board, is an asset as he's responsible for most of the laughs. As for the acting, it's not really acting, as in the fact it's more documentary like acting, this isn't bad documentary style acting either. The long bachelor party scene really cuts loose and brings out the laughs, again primarily to the oaf. Kate Cerbrano's "Passionate kisses" song was one I really liked from late 97 too. Again the down under message here is Men have d..ks, and women are horny, and we're capable of mistakes and the resolution of good friend Cerbrano, offering advice to the groom, to forgive and forget was a great dramatic point of the film, but yet again, these people aren't worth caring about, although I love seeing real life brought to the big screen and Rodgers has a talent doing this, making it work successfully, and making the viewer involved, although not being worthy of AFI potential.
