Tony Barry at his best as the lovable larrikin Lennie Cahill
6 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is the sort of comedy that Australians make well. The hero as always is a villain, the bad guys are the cops who persecute them by investigating their criminal activity.

Tony Barry is superb as the dying criminal Lennie keen to purge his conscience of a crime that resulted in unanticipated and tragic events. His nemesis, soon-to-be-retired cop "Twink", played competently as always by Chris Haywood is the perfect foil, as he too is determined to know the truth about this crime before he goes. Both lament the passing of old times, where a cop and a crook can at least have some grudging respect for each other.

Some of the veteran support cast members are wonderful, obviously relishing the opportunity to ham it up.

The script is tighter than we sometimes expect from Aussie comedy and it all ties together into a neat little package. This film won't change the way you look at the world, but it will amuse and entertain.
