Ladies lead the way!
2 September 2019 | by SuzieQ2See all my reviews

How amazing is seeing such a diverse cast taking Australian romantic comedy forward! The ex-girlfriend was hilarious, the best breakup scene in ages. Mr King's assistant had such poise but nailed the timing to set up some great laughs. Natasha and Angus had great chemistry too.

Some of the music was a little odd at times but other than that thoroghly enjoyed this journey across the outback, and plenty of coast line!
