A wonderful surprise packet
25 January 2019 | by sheepgrazingSee all my reviews

Well what an amazing little packet of joy this Aussie movie was. We had been waiting to see it for a little while, but were a little hesitant due to not being AFL fans or followers. There are lots of great laugh out loud moments with great Aussie humour....and sad to say that you don't realise how bigoted you actually are/have been with some things. Yes there are a few 'corny' moments, but hey, it's a comedy about footy for goodness sake......at least it's not like the idiot American toilet humour that they put on TV/cinema now days. The young child actor Rafferty Grierson does a superb job as Neil Barlow. There are even a couple of tearful moments in this one. I would give this little gem a 10....but hubby is a hard marker...so we compromised on a 9 Do yourself a favour and watch this one.
