Spudmonkey movie- plenty of humour
28 October 2008 | by caloeyxoxSee all my reviews

I saw Spudmonkey recently and thought it was great! I love Australian films and this one is definitely added to the list. It is the type of laid back film that anyone would enjoy and got plenty of laughs out of me. Even the simplest detail like how Jeff's family is always sitting on the couch while he is trying to follow his dream is pure bliss when it comes to the comic aspect of the movie. I really liked all of the characters as they are all so different but fit together well and feed off each other so easily when it comes to the humour. It's amazing that such a decent film was made on such a low budget, very impressive. I recommend this film to anyone and everyone.
