So Much Potential... But What A Waste
23 March 2003 | by LucanusSee all my reviews

Admittedly, I never took part in the annual pilgrimage to Surfer's Paradise as part of the infamous Australian Schoolie's Week, but even having said that, this movie was a disappointment. Instead of making a united and tightly interlinked movie by taking the five different starting points the movie began with (the limo, the cowboys, the bus, the train and the apartment) and actually having them culminate to a result which could be empathised with to a greater degree, the movie instead follows each group independantly through their meandering journeys intersecting for a few short minutes and then separating again and arriving at a conclusion that was, in a word, lame "sometimes you have to make new friends"!!!

What happened here? Did the writer get ditched by their school chums after high school, and they decided to write this film in an attempt to be at peace with their own lameness? Come on! The start of the movie had a lot of potential, don't get me wrong, but instead of exploiting that potential and coming up with something truly reflective of the event they are trying to portay, they decided to play it safe and wade in the shallow end of the experience. I would have expected more from a movie which tries to illustrate that it's characters need to risk a little to progress in life, as it failed in exactly the same manner it was trying to protect it's characters from.

"we know what we are, but know not what we may be" Well, we know what this movie is - a waste. And I know what it may have been - great.
