The Working Dog writing group's collaboration feels so organic. This is searching, vulnerable, dramatic, comedy.
It's a film made for the 1% who question their sweet life while sitting on a gold plated toilet.
While the film does have its flaws story-wise, the killer dialogue with its uniquely Australian style of wit makes it a true joy to watch.
Any Questions for Ben? is watchable enough. But it could have been so much more.
It's full of the kind of fake insights and sanctimonious crap to be found in magazine self-help columns. Pity, because that's a real fun killer.
The problem with the film, apart from it being only sporadically funny, is the character of Ben himself, there's too little development and a lot of repetition. But there's a lot to enjoy here.
The whole thing made me nostalgic for Working Dog's sharper days when they would surely have perpetrated all sorts of wickedness at Ben's expense.
I sense that others who similarly fell hard for the soulful sincerity of The Castle and The Dish will feel a little quizzical about the comparative slickness of Any Questions for Ben?
The talented bunch of actors ably cut through the surface gloss, but it's tough to remain invested in the plight of the self-absorbed lead.
It's a slick, lightweight feel-good film about a bunch of characters who happen to be sharing their glamorous, hard-partying lifestyle with you for a couple of hours.
It's slight and rarely laugh out loud funny-pleasant and occasionally chucklesome is an apt way to describe its loose style-but in the end I found myself smiling along to the proceedings, so I guess that's a win.
It's far from perfect, but it's damned funny.
Not much happening in the way of a story line. I couldn't really care less about any of these characters.
Ben has a nice life, a good job, good friends, and yet he's still unhappy with his lot. He has a few flings, but he can't commit. Until he does.
That's pretty much it.
Funny and slightly moving with a great script and lead performance. Full review later.
