Movie Info

DARREN 'DAZZA' COOK is a loveable suburban everyman with a long-established belief that his family is related to Captain James Cook. Dazza harbours a passion for barbequing, but when he accidentally gives his neighbours food poisoning at his popular regular Saturday BBQ, Dazza's reputation and dignity are on the line. To make amends he seeks tutelage from the tyrannical Scottish chef known simply as THE BUTCHER. Together they enter an international barbecue competition, pitting Dazza's homespun recipes against the world's best BBQ chefs.

Jacobson may be the best thing about the director and co-writer Stephen Amis' The BBQ, though that is not the same as saying he comes even remotely close to saving it.

A personality void dud of a comedy, undercooked in its writing and bland in its delivery.

There is more character development in this movie than in some I could name that have received multiple Oscar nominations. It made me laugh a lot, too.

The film is abysmal and it all comes down to an absolutely woeful script.

Feb 26, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Now, where to begin with how bad this film is? In the interests of brevity, most of the film's woes stem from one main problem: it has no frigging idea what it is trying to do.

The BBQ starts with a terrible script and goes downhill from there.
