Goofs

When Max logs into Gary's computer, the password is visible as he is typing it. Any modern computer concerned with security -- of which a police computer would certainly be one -- does not display the password as you type. See more »

Very enjoyable comedy romp
21 February 2018 | by deonastSee all my reviews

This was a very enjoyable comedy. Plenty of jokes hit their mark and the audience loved it from the laughter I heard in the session. To be upfront I some advanced session tickets from the Australian distributor, won in a competition. So we all saw it for free, but if I wanted to see a good comedy this one is worth paying to watch.

The humour is good, nothing too highbrow but you won't find any crass humour here, just good fun throughout the film.

The film does have its silly moments and the twists towards the end stretch believability, but you don't really care as you don't watch this film to critique, but just to enjoy the ride for a few hours. The characters are not deep, but you quickly grow to like them all or feel sorry for them as the film flows on.

Enjoyable, good clean fun with the odd bit of blood, that is even used to humourous effect.
