All Critics (5)

Dawes is the film's rough diamond; underneath her vulgar facade, she takes Shazza on a (comparatively) strong emotional arc and, to her credit, somehow manages to engender audience empathy.

The tiresome nature of the comedy wears thin very quickly. It's just the same easy jokes over and over again.

ABC Radio Brisbane

Very faithful, very funny, very crass big-screen version of [the] brilliantly low-brow TV series...as far as a film doing justice to the TV show on which it is based, Housos vs Authority leaves the abomination of Kath & Kimderella for dead.

It's a paean to the virtues of the versatile thong -- ubiquitous footwear, and a handy offensive weapon.

The Age (Australia)

The comedy swings between overreaching gags and genuine laughs, and while the narrative is also lacking, it's a surprisingly enjoyable romp.

Audience Reviews for Housos Vs. Authority


I don't know why I keep watching this revolting tv show and now the movie. I actually grew up in a suburb not unlike Sunnyvale, so theses caricatures are not unbelievable to me. Though it's exaggerated, there really are people like this out there and I think that's why I find myself watching it. It's like a love hate thing. I loathe it, but I relate to it. Need I add, I couldn't get out of "my" Sunnyvale quick enough. I am not, and never was a bogan. In that way, it is unfair to lump all state housing people into this category and I wonder about the ethics of making this show. This is realistic, ugly, scummy people. Not characters you would care about at all. Just bottom of the barrel, vile human beings. It's not funny so much as one big cringe. I rated it fairly highly as it is successful for what it is trying to portray. Except for Frankie. No way he would get all those girls to do all those things. I think ... I couldn't say if it is funny. Not to me, it's not. It does drag out too long at the end and goes beyond ridiculous, though.
