Aussie humour at its best!
17 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

This movie is perhaps my favourite Aussie film of all time! I remember growing up watching it and there wasn't a scene where I didn't have the full blown belly laugh. This is Australian humour at its best!! I recently looked for it on DVD and was deeply saddened to hear it has been discontinued. Searched on ebay and there are copies going for $100+ and I would easily pay that! It really is hilarious! And I don't understand those who say any different!! I LOVE this film!!! Every scene had something funny going on and really show the classic Aussie stereotypes!! Really good story line and fantastic actors!!

I couldn't help but notice how the only bad review about this movie came from London, England and as much as they think they may understand our Aussie humour and judge it from that, they clearly don't!! The other reviews, all great and all from Aussies. I spose its one just for us!! But classic Aussie humour, lots of stupid but witty sarcasm and full of the Aussie slang!! Defo one for the favo list!
