You and your stupid Film
10 July 2005 | by PeterZZSee all my reviews

It's a shameful fact, but this is an Australian film. It has stained any chance that Australia ever had to become a country known for making good films. This is actually a really big shame, as Australia has made some excellent films in the past, and although it wouldn't be able to match up to films such as Getting' Square, the writers of this film could have at least made an effort instead of the garbage put before the Austrlain public.

If it can be called a story, You and your Stupid Mate is a story about two brain dead friends, sharing what is a combination of a caravan and a tent. They spend their dole bludging days watching a home and away like TV series. However their boring little lives are destroyed once they find out that the network plans to axe the show. It's at this point they decide to make it their mission to save the show and will go to any lengths to do so.

So goodbye to the Australain Film industry. The writers of this film should hang out at funerals more often, because maybe then they can get some funnier material than what they managed to come up with. If a dead man was propped up on a stick, he could have done a better acting job then Nathan Phillips and Angus Sampson. The plot was about as riveting as a plain bread sandwich and the only thing that any members of the Austrlain film industry can hope for is that once something hits the bottom, things can only go upwards.

Stars: 0/10
