Easy going Aussie family entertainment
21 September 2018 | by dazzaler44See all my reviews

I honestly don't know why this movie has a low rating and negative reviews, this film is simply an easy comedy for the family to enjoy. Shane, Madga, Manu and always wonderful Julia Zemiro are very good in this film. I love that delclaimer at the end having a crack on people who illegally download their films...BRAVO!

Highly recommended
