Both plotting and playing are a bit ragged and the visuals are telly-tastic, but the film's fresh, unvarnished take on male friendship is altogether winning.
| Original Score: 3/5
A few rather clunky plot developments aside, this is a tender, funny and very well acted film with engaging characters.
It's poignant, well acted and occasionally funny, but a little formulaic, too.
This is a movie with a big heart, and nice performances from Josh Bolt and Eugene Byrne, playing teenage best mates, but for me it somehow never quite got over its sentimental unrealities.
| Original Score: 2/5
Others may respond more readily than I did to this ambitious attempt to blend kitchen-sink realism, heartwarming sitcom and raunchy sex comedy. For me, they didn't gel at all.
| Original Score: 1/5
A conflicted, uneven experience: sugary kitchen-sink realism with wank jokes.
The film's keen observation of individuals in crisis, not to mention its adept balance of life-affirming wit and chastening introspection, give it plenty of heart.
| Original Score: 4/5
It could have been terrible, but director Bruce Webb's comedy is affecting, funny and really very moving.
