Unpredictable genre twists and very funny
15 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

I watch about 100 to 200 films a year.

Some are just crap. This one was NOT.

I really enjoyed this Aussie Film. I liked each and every character in this film. So many genre twists I couldn't work out what was going to happen next. Which usually turned out surprising and funny. So funny and so entertaining. I watched it three days ago and I'm still smiling and laughing about it.

And yes the ending surprised even me. Brilliant! This was just a fun film for me.

Thanks to all in the Australian film industry who had anything to do with this film.
