Never saw the TV show...
4 November 2009 | by naterkix-552-997121See all my reviews

...but I found this to be an enjoyable movie. I probably never saw the show since it's Australian and I live in the US but the characters are easy to understand fairly quickly since most have only a few motivations, most of which most comedy movie male characters in a certain age do: chicks, booze, good times... The usual. It's probably not more than a rental (I happened upon it late night on one of the Encore movie channels) but if you like movies that tell the tale of a "crazy night with kooky hi-jinks" and don't feel the need to be politically correct every second of your life, you'll have a good time. It's not a movie of the year in any way but there's a lot of laughs to be had.
