Five Otago University students ('Scarfies') decide to squat in an empty house. They discover a locked room that holds a hidden treasure - a large quantity of marijuana. What happens when the cash-strapped students decide to become amateur druglords for the week? And what exactly should they do about the owner of the crop?Written by

The letter to Alex from his mother in Ettrick has the return address as "RD 1, Ettrick". Ettrick is not a valid postal town, and it isn't Rural Delivery 1 - the correct postal address for Ettrick and its rural surrounds is "RD 2, Roxburgh". See more »
You come about the flat?
I warn ya, this place is free for a reason. It's a shit hole. Still want to have a look?
Okay. Guided tour... Hallway, dark, damp, rat-infested.

SCARFIES is a good movie, with intense situations and even well thought out responses by the characters to said intense situations. Unfortunately the whole thing collapses with a 10-minute farcical ending that begs to be redone.
Also, I've read people comment that the kids were complex. Wow. Did we see the same movie? Let's see: The a$$hole guy/bad boy; the rich girl who falls for the bad boy; the sensitive guy; the weirdo kid who wants to get in the rich girl's pants; and the sensitive girl. Gee, how complex.
Nothing too great. Good, decent movie, but a really, really stupid ending that cheats. A better ending would have offered us something dark, something bloody. Instead we get an ending that "makes everything all right". I thought only Hollywood did crap like this. Apparently not.
