After the first few credits, there are two additional scenes: a dog entering Gregor and Brad's apartment and eating the forgotten liver, and then the patient at the hospital waiting for it finally dying. See more »
Fun, entertaining black comedy
much in the mould of similar hollywood efforts (eg GO); two medical students face expulsion if they fail one more subject, and with a matter of days until their finals, they must find enough money for some decent food, books and rent. So they become muggers - but they're after something with a little more value on the black market than notes and coins!! Day is good as always; Petra Yared (whom others may have seen briefly in JOURNEY TO THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH) looks like one for the future. And for those attracted by the possibility of seeing (finally!!) Nicola Charles' breasts, she doesn't disappoint. Australia doesn't make many of these racy films aimed at the older teenage/young adult bracket - recent efforts have been poorly scripted (DAGS; SENSITIVE NEW AGE KILLER) or not well-enough known (ALL THE WAY). Finally here's something that will appeal to a mainstream audience that also manages to convey a slightly crude view of governmental resource allocation and the Student Situation. Rating: 7/10.
