    There's a side of people, mostly hidden, that's as sick and twisted as anything you can ever imagine ... and then there's the other side, and that's mostly hidden too. This film explores both sides, and some grey areas in between, in a way that most works of fiction don't. One might be shocked, but most residents of this planet won't be. It's not what this film says that's shocking, it's that it's said at all. Great, adventurous filmmaking here. Very impressive.

    This is one truly disturbingly disgusting and yet by far the funniest film that depicted the real and raw Australia, it's so brilliantly scripted. The experimental shots were successful, it's a disturbing version of Rain Man and Forrest Gump Mash with Mr. Bean. I do not recommend anyone to watch this film without being warned, but if you can sit through the first 20 minutes then you can enjoy the rest of the sick film. I love the boundary pushing and dark humour in the film, combining religion symbolism and sexual juxtaposition. The has a strong artistic value that makes the viewers think about the meaning of life and death

    A startling film, and clearly an influence on the likes of <i>Dogtooth</i>, <i>Bad Boy Bubby</i> is disturbing and troubling but also often very funny. Despite a relentlessly bleak first hour, the film has an optimistic, even humanistic conclusion and a refreshingly positive atheistic philosophy. The final section does drag, it's true, especially some of the band-jam scenes, but Nicholas Hope's performance is extraordinary and how many films can you name that contain incest, horrific abuse, death by cling-film and rape and yet have a decidedly upbeat ending?
