I heard bad things, and was pleasantly surprised
I had heard bad reviews for this gem (such as the comment prior to mine), so went into the cinema with low expectations. But, not only did this movie have me laughing out loud regularly throughout, I also found the "average bloke with stars in his eyes" romance quite charming.
Just goes to show how bi-polar opinions can be - because I didn't think much of Jimeon's other movie, The Craic, and yet from what I've heard, public opinion is the other way around.
I know that my 2 friends in the cinema with me liked it at least as much as me, if not more, and we weren't the only ones laughing in the audience that night.
I thought the supporting roles played by a variety of recognizable Australian faces were great, and no, Jimeon's acting isn't Oscar winning, but it was certainly believable enough that I didn't spend any time dwelling on it.
If you like Jimeon, you will definitely enjoy this movie. If you're not adverse to Australian comedy, you should see this movie. I considered my $15 money well spent.
