      Frank Scheck Hollywood Reporter Chris Kennedy's film isn't nearly as much fun as it seems to think it is. Jun 9, 2005 Full Review Ned Martel New York Times In this seasick, heartsick romp, a suburban Australian family struggles with love, loyalty and a fear that the patriarch is making his mortal enemies disappear. Rated: 1.5/5 May 9, 2005 Full Review Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News This amiable, off-kilter Australian comedy pits parental manipulation against adolescent pride, with generally amusing results. Rated: 2/4 May 6, 2005 Full Review Eric Monder Film Journal International Lacks a coherent message, let alone anything very funny at which to laugh. Mar 1, 2007 Full Review Sunday Times (Australia) Rated: 2.5/5 May 7, 2005 Full Review Ken Fox TV Guide Chris Kennedy's amusing comedy feels more like a 90-minute pilot for a TV series than a feature film. Rated: 2.5/5 May 6, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Loved this movie - understated brilliant aussie humour Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member hadn't it been so Aussie, I wouldn't have liked it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie reminds me so much of my own family in a way. An absolute crack up. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Good Aussie humour. Well crafted and very warm. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member crap. john howard marginally makes this better then an episode of neighbours. To much clutter, and pointless shit in this film, such as One of the characters keeps singing the most annoying songs- who cares! why do we need to see/ hear it three timers! once was enough... lame. boring. balls. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member I very aussie suburbs feeling movie with some very nice insidious humour. Despite it having such a small budget, i think it worked really well, its very very funny. In fact it's 'triffic'. John Howard executes his character extremely well.
