Christopher Skase. He ruled Australia and stole a fortune, fleeing to the coast of Spain. No one could touch him. No one could stop him. Until Peter Dellasandro and a small force of men swore they'd bring him down.
Christopher Skase was a white collar fugitive until Australia decided to launch an unofficial chase to get Skase. The man who owned television networks, hotels and companies went broke and fled the country to Spain. Peter Dellasandro assembled a team of five people, including Skase's head of security to travel to Majorica to bring Skase back to Australia. The problem is, before they can go, they have to win over the board of Qintex, Skase's former company.Written by

Let's something straight here Eric, I created you, I invented your past. You took what I created... and turned it into this 'Debt Collector' bullshit!
That's because 'The Bodyguard' wasn't working out.
Bullshit! Every week you had to save the live of a celebrity. Why do you think we had Gary Coleman, doing 'Different Strokes' out here, he was a great kid!
Exactly, who'd wanna kill him?

Good goofball fun.
One of the hallmarks of Australian comedies is enthusiasm, especially in the service of total absurdity. This film takes all the elements of a typical "American action film" and ratchets them up to Aussie levels. Sure it's ridiculous -- it's meant to be. What I like is the way the writer-director-acting-in-it-too team of Lachy Hulme and Matthew George put this thing together is that all the action and world-shaking intrigue is ultimately just background. This is really just a story about a bunch of guys trying to Get Something Right for once in their lives. There's a lot of love and goofball fun in this movie. I recommend it to anyone who needs a good laugh, either at themselves, the movies, or the world in general.
