Acko and co (the "bad guys") drive a series of cars made by Ford, while Wozza, Craig and Deidre (the "good guys") drive cars made by Holden. In reality, Ford and Holden are traditional rivals in the car industry and motor racing scene in Australia. See more »
In the scene where Jimmy arrives at Sharon's apartment building, the light indicates early morning/late afternoon. This would not be possible between the scene before (a 10am meeting with Pando) and the scene after (a midday swim at Bondi Beach). See more »

Lets hope director Jordan has more tales up his sleeve to tell.
Jordan takes us into the seedy crime side of Sydney, Australia, following the desperate attempt of nineteen year old Jimmy, (Heath Ledger), who bundles a job for a local gangster and needs to make amend before they get to him. The gangsters, (led by Bryan Brown), are a menacing bunch with a humorous streak in them. That's what makes the film work, because we always view gangsters as a rough bunch out to screw you badly. But this mob tickle your funny bone as well. A clever structured script by Jordan has characters crossing paths and getting caught in the web plot.
