This movie has everything going for it. A great Director, Stunning Australian location, a Hot Soundtrack and a cast of some of Australia's and England's finest comedic talents.
However that means very little when the script they had to work with is a puerile, mildly amusing mish mash of ideas and concepts copied from other movies (The Hangover meets Muriel's Wedding meets just about every Hugh Grant movie ever made!)
If it was for the brilliant casting of Olivia Newton John, this movie would be a total Turkey!
Cringeworthy, like the Hangover but even weirder, if that's possible. The kind of movie that leaves you wondering why you'd even HAVE friends like that. I find it interesting that some people see it as an embarrassing representation of Aussies, and for others its an embarrassing representation of English 'lads'.
A few laughs but mostly quite predictable in its ridiculousness. I kept thinking 'why would you do it THAT way?' for example why not just say you found the Ram walking around on the estate?
Nice to see the Blue Mountains and Yester Grange featuring in a movie no matter what the context.
Overall, not horrible.
Very entertaining - never a dull moment
Terrible! Embarrassing! Sad indictment on the state of Australian cinema.
LOL funny the whole thing!
Couple of funny moments that left me laughing. But in general movie prescribes to 'aussies really are a weird lot' type of stereotyping of characters. Could have been funnier. But just tried too hard.
Started off slow, but builds into really funny movie. We enjoyed it.
I enjoy Australian movies because they are a bit different, love to see the countryside on the big screen. It wasn't too bad, managed to entertain me. I used to be a fan of Olivia, she looks like a freak with all the plastic surgery!
OMG. THIS IS A SHOCKER Such talent wasted. A low point in the history of Australian movies.
Funny in parts, can get a bit silly in others :) Also BEST QUALITY BLU-RAY. The detail was picture perfect, shot on digital film @ 4k :) Amazing !!! Worth a watch
