Terrific Australian Comedy
3 September 2017 | by mailes22See all my reviews

If there were more movies like this, it would break down fears about Muslims in our communities. Yes, many of their traditions and customs are different to the average white Australian's, and this movie doesn't hold back from poking gentle fun at some of those customs. But it also shows that families generally tend to be a complex mix of being supportive, infuriating, close-knit, meddlesome and loving all at the same time. And most people can relate to that.

This is a really sweet movie, funny a lot of the time, sad occasionally, and quite unexpectedly good. Definitely worth going to see.
