Incredibly funny if you have the intellect to understand it
12 March 2006 | by jacen_jainaSee all my reviews

A movie that shows us a well welcomed return to "Subtle comedy", something definitely lacking in todays film industry. What starts out as possibly a very believable movie plot gets sillier and sillier and you can't help but laugh..... which is the idea! Excellent performers from all involved especially Geoffrey Rush and David Wenham. The beauty of the movie is that it is masterminded by one person. Not one of these godforsaken movies that is written by one person, produced by someone who doesn't care, directed by a friend of the production company who owes them a favour etc. Honestly, i don't expect everyone to enjoy this, but if you're into black comedy and smart humour, give it a go.
