Storyline

Steve liked Celia from the moment they met. But following a clash with her boss, Raelene Beagle-Thorpe, Minister for employment, he finds himself on national television branded as Australia's biggest dole bludger. Now Steve has to prove to Celia, to himself, and to the whole country, that there's more to him than meets the eye. With a little help from his friends, he might just do it. As long as he can keep his best friend Frank away for Annie, Celia's little sister... and protect Frank's cousin Dom, from Tony, the insane local crime lord to whom Dom owes money... and prevent Theo, and enterprising neighbour, from throwing himself in front of a car to collect insurance. Mate there's just got to be an easier way to meet chicks. Written by Peter

Goofs

When the Department of Employment supervisor stamps the benefit form 'SUSPENDED" and hands it back to Steve, although it is shown upside down, the name at the top-right of the form is not Steve's but his friend Theo's (most noticeable in the remastered widescreen version). See more »

crack up !!
26 February 2000 | by pri_eSee all my reviews

I thought this movie was a crack up, it was good that it was more than a love story but rather a comedy about a race of friends and their views of life in an Australian society. I thought they all did a great job, and it's good to see that Abi Tucker and Lucy Bell got into something great after "heartbreak high" and "murder call" ! Nick Giannopolous does an excellent job as his character Steve, and a great job and creating this movie
