Movie Info

Australian director Bill Bennett (Kiss or Kill) adds broad slapstick comedy to his repertoire with this rags-to-riches tale of luck and greed. The Nugget follows three pals whose occasional searches for gold in the outback are little more than an inane hobby. That is, until a sign from above directs them to an actual reserve of the precious metal hidden in the hills. Overcome with avarice, the trio bickers over how to split up the booty, all the while not noticing that two other enterprising men are waiting in the wings to steal their find. The Nugget stars future Hulk actor Eric Bana in a leading role. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovimore

After coming across this one Saturday morning, I ended up sitting and watching the entire thing with intending to, but it ended up being a pleasant surprise. The film doens't really tackle any groundbreaking topics or unveil much about the level of greed people achieve, but it certainly had a few laughs, a likable cast, and some clever moments. I don't think I recommend that you hunt it down right away, but if you happen to stumble upon it unexpectedly you should give it a shot. It's still quite something to get see Eric Bana at his comedy roots after being accustom to his more serious roles (Although 'Hulk' was pretty laughable)....
