Wonderfully Australian comedy short
18 August 2015 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

In the future, time travel is a simple procedure that anyone can do within the rules. For many it is a chance to go back and tell a dead parent how much they loved them, and really say goodbye properly – however for Richard it is a chance to tell his 10-year old self to focus on learning to play the guitar, with the sole goal of the newly created adult self having the upper-hand when it comes to trying to have sex with women. What could go wrong?

In case the title doesn't let you know, the tone of this film is very much the product of the brash and warmly crude sense of humor of Australia. This is a country where etiquette pretty much requires that you smatter your conversation with swearing, and remains one of the few places in the world where you can be called a c**t and have it be a term of affection. This sense of crudity but not cruelty is very much a key aspect of this film, which is a lot of fun in its broad yet sharply timed delivery. The plot is a typical time-travel affair, with the usual mess resulting from attempts to change the past, but it is done with such energy and such compact and well timed comedy that it is hard not to fall for its crass charms.

The dialogue is well delivered and written, with sight gags, and the general confusion all piling up on top of everything else; all this giving the film a density that is consistently pleasing and funny. The plot escalates very nicely and, although you've seen it before, the sense of energy and comic timing stops you worrying. The ending has a couple of punch lines, and kudos to the film for picking a low key but telling one to go out on – the film is better for it.

All in all, a funny and very well made short with plenty of gags, laughs, and energy – all delivered with good performances and timing throughout.
