      Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald The whole thing made me nostalgic for Working Dog's sharper days when they would surely have perpetrated all sorts of wickedness at Ben's expense. Rated: 3/5 Feb 10, 2012 Full Review Blake Howard 2UE That Movie Show The Working Dog writing group's collaboration feels so organic. This is searching, vulnerable, dramatic, comedy. Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 27, 2012 Full Review Cameron Williams The Popcorn Junkie It's a film made for the 1% who question their sweet life while sitting on a gold plated toilet. Rated: 0.5/5 Mar 8, 2012 Full Review Tim Martain The Mercury (Australia) While the film does have its flaws story-wise, the killer dialogue with its uniquely Australian style of wit makes it a true joy to watch. Rated: 3.5/5 Feb 11, 2012 Full Review Julie Rigg MovieTime, ABC Radio National Any Questions for Ben? is watchable enough. But it could have been so much more. Feb 10, 2012 Full Review Peter Galvin sbs.com.au It's full of the kind of fake insights and sanctimonious crap to be found in magazine self-help columns. Pity, because that's a real fun killer. Rated: 2.5/5 Feb 10, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member One of those movies that through its insistence that you sympathise with the main character's existential crisis instead leaves you actively rooting for his total failure in all aspects of life. There are a few amusing secondary performances. Ed Kavalee. John Howard. That's about it. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Funny and slightly moving with a great script and lead performance. Full review later. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member One Big Promotional Piece For Melbourne Tourism Courtesy Of Emirates Airlines..The Final Scene In Abu-Dhubi Was Pointless & The Ump-Teenth Number Of Musical Montages Did My Head In. Avoid!! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Awful. Not funny, not clever, not witty, not insightful... not enjoyable at all. Good thing I was expecting as much... it IS Aussie after all :-P Sure sometimes we strike gold with the likes of 'The Castle' (depressing that many of the same people were responsible for this), 'Priscilla', 'Muriel's Wedding', 'Wolf Creek' or 'The Loved Ones' (actually our horror is usually pretty good), 'Chopper' etc, but for the most part, Aussie = avoid. ... and what the hell is playing a (different) song every... single... time there's no dialogue. Trying to sell a soundtrack? Started to get annoying. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Good movie, it kept me engaged. Did not play out the way I expected it to. Good moral tale, that proves sometimes having it all, it not entirely the truth Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Not much happening in the way of a story line. I couldn't really care less about any of these characters. Ben has a nice life, a good job, good friends, and yet he's still unhappy with his lot. He has a few flings, but he can't commit. Until he does. That's pretty much it. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews
