Very cringeworthy Australian film
9 August 2018 | by Badsharkmoviefan_118See all my reviews

Bought this off Google play the other day for $3 and I so wish I could get my money back. This is another shocking Aussie movie. Another reviewer says is a down right embarrassment for Australians and I 100% agree. It didn't help that the night before I had watched the great Aussie film The Castle. How far the mighty Australian film industry has falling when we continue to get junk like this.

All the actors were terrible in this too but it was more the script they were working with then the lack of talent. Manu who i can't stand at the best of times is particularly annoying. Magda Szubanski's butcher character wasn't any better and even Shane Jacobson couldn't rescue this film.
