Storyline

The Crop, set in the early '80s, is about a larrikin nightclub owner, Ronnie (Blade) Gillette, and his barmaid girlfriend Geraldine. Two months after random breath testing has been introduced, Blade realises he's going broke. Afraid of driving under the influence, his customers are not buying his grog-they're going out to the carpark to smoke dope. Like any good businessman, Blade decides he needs a strategy. He decides to grow some dope as a way out of his financial hole. Diversify and expand-beauty! Written by Anonymous

Not half as bad as the latte critics would have it
16 December 2006 | by SocrateaseSee all my reviews

This film was panned by the chattering classes, including the fossils on "At the Movies", yet it is many times better than the sanctimonious tripe pumped out every night in "soap time" on TV.

This is a very good attempt by a first timer and Indie. Sure it had its problems but it is far form "the worst Aussie film ever" or words to that effect. I've walked out on numerous films that deserve that award; the all time flopperoo would have to be "Wannabes". I enjoyed this film for what it is – an unpretentious romp about a knockabout bloke down on his luck.

I say good on you George Elliott for having a go. Forget the knockers, they have no talent other than to knock, and that's nothing to be proud of.
