Storyline

A wannabe professional thief has an epic fail when he's caught stealing a package and forced to take a young woman hostage back to his gay friend's house where, despite pressure from his deranged, yoga-loving boss, he can't dispense with her and instead the three face a bunch of quirky thugs sent by the boss who will do anything to get his hands on the mysterious package.

A Cracking Crime Comedy from Down Under
23 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

Frostie (Dwayne Cameron) is, contrary to popular myth, not a Snowman in this Aussie offering. He is a professional thief – and he has an agent, this is in the, very rotund, shape of Terry. Now he is not a nice man and he has others who work for him – more brawn than brain though. Then he sends Frostie to get a package from a nice suburban house – should be a nice earner with no complications

However, whilst there he discovers he is not alone and has no choice but to take his hapless victim captive. And thus the most ludicrous hostage situation ever begins. This involves his gay mate too; and just keep an eye out for some great touches including the world's most interestingly shaped bong.

Now I expected nothing from this but it is the film that just keeps giving. The characters are all likable and for the most part believable and the story is storming too. This sort of has it all and for a small budget indie you'd not notice the limitations – and that is some achievement; moreover it is genuinely funny. This is from Dan Macrthur who should be very pleased with this film – completely recommended
