Movie Info

Aboriginal pals Charlie and Eddie flee a demonic dog and make some quirky new friends during a hazy journey into the Australian Outback to return a sacred stone to its rightful resting place. Long ago, Eddie's uncle entrusted him with a divine stone from Kalgoorlie. Promising that he would one day make the pilgrimage to Kalgoorlie and reconnect with his Aboriginal roots, Eddie stashed the stone in his jacket for safe keeping. When his careless friend Charlie trades the jacket without asking, Eddie vows to recover the stone and reconnect with his roots. But he won't be getting rid of his ganja-smoking mate that easy, and as the two hit the highway, they're joined by a whole host of eccentrics including forsaken Italian heavy metal singer Vinnie, and talented drag queen Regina. Later, with an infernal, glowing-eyed canine hot on their trail, the unlikely foursome hatches a plan to hold up a museum, and attends one of the wildest wedding ceremonies ever thrown. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Stone Bros

All Critics (10)

Stone Brothers indulges in a spectacular willingness to take the piss that's both a strength and a weakness.

While some of the comedy is a bit brash and silly, Stone Bros. definitely succeeds in using humour to communicate some home truths.

Concrete Playground

THC-inspired tomfoolery serves as a smokescreen for all manner of countercultural observations on society and race... as Eddie and Charlie's road trip becomes a broader quest for their Aboriginal roots and identity in a postmodern Oz.

Eye for Film

Frankland's attempt at a broad stoner comedy misses the mark in so many ways the film almost qualifies as a tragedy.

The Age (Australia)

Won't burst through the comedic stratosphere, but Stone Bros. is still a trip worth taking.

Moviedex

While the ebullient burst of rough-and-ready slapstick which delivers the message is far from a comic masterstroke, it does produce a rousing finish to this shambolic but irrepressibly good-natured film.

Audience Reviews for Stone Bros

Watch "Road Trip" or "Sex Drive" if you like a really good, funny "road" movie. This flick is just silly, stupid, frankly unfunny, and really utter nonsense.
