Being dragged along to the cinema by my best friend, I was rather worried when she said "There's a new ozzie film called Crackerjack, wanna see? oh... come on... please"
I grimacingly acquiesced. The lead is played by Mick Molloy, well known to the Australian radio airwaves, and was actually pleasantly surprised.
The film had a lot more substance than one would think from the advertising, and the jokes were a great deal quicker, and more humourous than you would imagine.
The performances were brilliant, especially from the 'old folk' all Australian legends in their own rights, and I was actually touched by Mick Molloy's acting. Judith Lucy made her foray from stand-up comedy to acting successfully as well.
It was well worth the money, and I think I'll even borrow it when it comes out on video.
