Movie Info

Rocking All Over The World, Status Quo witnesses a gang murder in Fiji. They flee with crucial evidence; have they played their last gig? Rock legends Status Quo are finishing their 50 Year Celebration tour. They come off stage to thunderous applause and slip away for a quiet drink. Suspecting a bigger party is going on in the back bar, Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt slip through security and gate crash the event. They witness a gambling ring forcing competitors to play Russian Roulette. The winner gets dinner. The other loses their head. Parfitt and Rossi grab evidence of the murder and create a commotion so they can get away. Wilson the lead gangster, catches sight of them and orders their heads. Parfitt and Rossi are on the run. Simon, their manager, and Caroline, a cheeky intern, are tasked with keeping the press in the dark while protecting Status Quo. An ambitious reporter, Dave, senses there is a story. Caroline holds him off as long as possible, but as the situation escalates, enlists his help. Using sea-planes, speed boats, jet skis, golf carts and scuba gear, Status Quo and their entourage evade capture and manage to leave paradise.

Critic Reviews for Bula Quo!

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (1)

Not so much a movie, more a pub chat that got way out of hand, this ludicrous attempt to plonk veteran rockers Status Quo in an exotic international thriller is so laughably lame it verges on the surreal.

Top Critic

Amateurish acting, slapdash direction and a ropey plot can't entirely dispel the cockeyed charm of this bizarre screen vehicle for Status Quo frontmen Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt.

The pain experienced while watching Bula Quo! can be dulled slightly by speculating about which stand-up comic will eventually get to demolish the film when it makes its inevitable appearance as part of the Bad Film Club.

New Statesman

60-something men on a madcap tropical romp look more than a little desperate. Especially when the writing, directing and editing are this choppy.

Shadows on the Wall

Bula Quo! is absolute nonsense of the highest order.

HeyUGuys

It's not often a brutal murder is soundtracked by a three-chord riff, but this amiable cobblers somehow gets away with it.
