'The Nugget' is a tale about a group of three roadworkers who stumble upon the world's biggest nugget, and become instant millionaires - or so they think. The roadworkers are mates from way back, and each weekend they go out to an old goldmining site hoping to strike it rich. Each weekend they come back with nothing but a hangover. But then everything changes when they discover the world's biggest nugget - worth many millions of dollars.Written by

According to visual effects house Rising Sun Pictures (RSP) in South Australia, their challenge for this film was working "...on a number of effects for 'The Nugget'. These included creating 'fingers of God' as the Nugget is discovered. A river of gold was created in Softimage as the nugget magically escapes and finds its true home. Day shots were magically turned into stormy nights, and along with the usual wire removal, we also managed to create and animate a CG cockatoo in Softimage." See more »
So you look at this movie and think - Eric Bana, great, Vince Colosimo, good, that guy from the Castle, yeah, good. You think Australian film set in a country town, plenty of potential here. This has to be great. How wrong could you be ? Characters that could be straight out of a primary school students "composition" book, a story line so projected Blind Freddy could see it coming and so many stereotypes and failed gags you'll be embarrased to watch it. I could only begin to feel the actors pain upon seeing themselves in this absolute flop of a movie.
