Pretty Good stuff.
23 April 2015 | by James_TheManSee all my reviews

Great acting and crazy laughs, especially towards the end. I left surprised, dazed, pleased with a 'WTF just happened' vibe in my head.

Most Aussie films are disappointing, to me anyway, like 90% of the time, but this surprised me and inspired me and had me feeling patriotic strangely enough?!? And it was made in Melbourne where I live! Kind of low budget and character driven, like 'The Castle' which is old but also awesome.

The movie builds up into this nuts vibe and the whole audience was setting us off. There are parts where a main character gets into some very very awkward spots that are the most embarrassing kinds of situations you could ever imagine, and you cringe and laugh at the same time. Hard to explain - kind of heavy but funny. I've gotta see more comedy.

Very much well worth the watch, highly recommended.
