Storyline

Aussie Icon Paul Hogan just wants the quiet life. He lives in Brentwood, California, happy in retirement, content doing the daily crossword and enjoying regular calls from Lucy, his delightful 10-year-old granddaughter in Sydney. So, when his agent drops by to tell him he'll be receiving a knighthood for services to comedy, he is less than impressed by this imposition and much to his agents' chagrin, turns down the offer. Paul attempts to return to his tranquil life but Lucy calls; she has excitedly told kids at her new school that granddad has been offered a Knighthood. They laughed at her. What? Paul realises he needs to get the Knighthood to help her salvage her reputation. After much begging and pleading, his agent reluctantly agrees to call the Palace. The Knighthood is back on. The next six weeks, however, see Hogan's brand totally trashed. Although he is always trying to do the right thing and salvage his quickly diminishing reputation, life is conspiring against him. He's ... Written by Official Synopsis

A tidal wave of mediocrity
18 July 2020 | by brentqueanbeyanSee all my reviews

Paul Hogan stars in this slapdash comedy where the beloved Australian icon is being awarded a knighthood for services to comedy, nominations must have closed prior to the release date. The standout performance in this 90 minute 'masterpiece' is definitely the jar of Vegemite, it's smooth ability and onscreen presence is unrivalled by it's costars. Hoges was of course in fine form and is still the loveable larrikin we know him to be.
