      Finn H One of my all time favourites, that fact that it was filmed around the area I grew certainly contributes! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/24 Full Review Peter W Overall, this is truly a fun film with pleasing elements of both charm and creativity. As an Australian film, I can understand why so many people love it, and I'm surprised at how well this film still holds up.  The performance of Colin Friels as Malcolm is brilliant and unforgettable.
