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.
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.
The new Australian comedy The BBQ is so overwhelmingly bland, you often forget how faintly awful it consistently remains from beginning to end.
...the latest in Australia's long line of generally affable homegrown comedies...
Stephen Amis' broad farce lands a few gentle barbs at modern Australian society but this likably silly romp, a sort of celebration of 'Dad Joke' humour, feels most at ease when it's just having a bit of a laugh.
Despite its low-budget trappings, the talented cast do a great job in giving a genuine sense of compassion to their characters, delivering an uncynical rendering of the typical projected Australian image.
