Aussie comedy gold
12 September 2018 | by bazza_mckenzie02See all my reviews

This is a film that should speak to everyone it has a great story and is a down to earth feel good comedy driven by an important and touching theme.

Packed with laughs the audience I watched it with were laughing our heads off. The cast deliver top notch performances and the director applies more of the screen magic he brought to life in Backyard Ashes.

Bonzer film everyone's kicked a goal with this Aussie comedy classic.

Aussie's see it in cinemas now and help get it more screenings.

Can't wait to add it to my Australian film collection.
