I'm not saying it's a quality film, but......
13 January 2007 | by burnsey71See all my reviews

There are countless films with the same plots or they have riped off stuff from other films and they still suck. Yes this film may have taken ideas from other movies like Momento and Tarentino films but at least it is entertaining. It has a good story, interesting characters and is very funny in spots. Steady Eddie comes up with some classic lines. It does have that amateur feeling about it that you get with many Aussie films but it's achieves what I consider the most important thing a movie should do and that is entertain you. I've given it a 6/10 but it probably deserves a 6.5/10. It's worth watching if you don't want to watch something too serious.
