      Audience Member Silly, crude, offensive - and absolutely hilarious! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Fun for approximately the first five minutes. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member very irreverant and suprisingly funny poke at aussie culture Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Has it's funny moments! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member A very bad taste 'comedy' with copious vomiting, beer swilling and lots of jokes at the 'Pomme's' expense... you will need the subtitles to understand most of it. Saving grace is again, the glamorous female vampire! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member I saw this at the Paddington RSL of all places. Cameo stars Gough and Margaret were in the audience, and got a standing ovation when they entered, unannounced. I wept at that, and that just started me off. I missed about half the fillum crying with laughter. I'd really never seen anything like this and it'll be a long time before anyone makes a film like this again.

      Kenneth Robinson The Spectator Most of the jokes are either bad or filthy. Sometimes they are both at the same time, and in such an outrageous way that the experience becomes therapeutic. Jun 24, 2015 Full Review Matthew Pejkovic Matt's Movie Reviews This is a comedy that employs the crudest of humour. It is a racist, sexist, homophobic, and anti-Catholic travesty that just does not sit well in these politically correct times, and nor should it. Rated: 2/5 Jan 5, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews
