One of the best and forgotten Aussie comedies.

very disappointing film, i was hoping for something really entertaining, but alas, stupidity and low-budget laughter, with a topping of highly unlikely events once again struck australian comedy. And to anyone who reads this, this film was made in and at the end of my street! this is why i was so excited about it, and i saw some of the filming in progress, so i was really hoping for something good, but i was disappointed. Vince Colosimo is better than this.

Good for sticking it to fast food chains, but nothing great.

Really quite funny, a nice story but I think the end was a bit ridiculous

"Take Away" is right up there on my list of favourite Aussie movies. What can I say? I love it. I love Vince Colosimo, I love Stephen Curry, I love Nathan Phillips, I love Rose Byrne, I love Tom Budge... but really I just love the story. It's a funny movie. "Take Away" is by no means a cinematic masterpiece, but it IS funny and not boring or depressing like many other Aussie movies.

When you watch a film such as 'Take Away', you shouldn't treat it as a piece of art. What I mean is, just enjoy it for what it is. Realise that it doesn't have a large budget or stellar cast. Honestly, 'Take Away' isn't too bad. It plays out like an 88-minute episode of 'Round the Twist'. It has a premise that's easy to follow and contains some decent humour. Stephen Curry is especially good in his role because he seems to be acting naturally. I found Vince Colosimo's performance to be mediocre. He has a very colourful personality, perhaps 'too' colourful. He tries to deliver every line boldly, when realistically, not every line needs to be delivered with gusto. He has intonation problems. Rose Byrne is good in this, and is now making the big bucks in the United States. Nathan Phillips can't act, but I'm sure he knows it. The film's ending is very displeasing. It was surely concocted without any serious thought and/or intelligence. It happens too quickly, plus it's highly unrealistic. Unrealistic elements are fine in a movie...if it's of the fantasy genre.

Great aussie movie. Lots of Laughs. Most ridiculous way of taking away a take away place. Didn't get the ending so much with the prison

Some cheap laughs but this is a bad film that doesn't explore any of the questions that it asks and has the most ridiculous ending ever.
