Reviews

Paul Hogan (Crocodile Dundee) and Shane Jacobson (Kenny) star in this comedy/drama from Australia.

When Charlie McFarlane (Paul Hogan) withdraws from his life after a family tragedy, his estranged son, Boots (Shane Jacobson) decided to drag his reluctant father on a trip to fulfill their lifelong ambition to fish off Australia’s northern tip in Cape York. The Feisty Charlie wants no part in this crazy idea, but propelled by Boots’ determination, they travel across the country towards their faraway destination. When joined by a young and upbeat hitchhiker, they are compelled to view their relationship in a new light. Old wounds are reopened and family secrets are revealed against a backdrop of beautiful landscapes and new perspectives.

Format: DVD
This is a warm comedy from Australia made in 2009. It stars the inimitable, Paul Hogan as the title named Charlie. His beloved wife dies suddenly and he loses the plot, retreating to a world of prescription drugs and despondency. His younger son just carries on with the farm and lets his dad get on with it. Then slightly estranged older son, Boots turns up. Boots is played with real care and compassion by Shane Jobson who had a part in `The Bourne Legacy' and aint half bad.

He remembers a promise his dad had made to him when he was a nipper. That was to go fishing on the Northern most tip of Australia at Cape York. So he packs Charlie into his car and they start on a three thousand mile road trip. On the way they rekindle their flagging relationship and get to meet some great characters and have some very amusing adventures. They also get to visit some cultural high spots, like the Giant Koala Tourist Complex and stay in a period Georgian Motor Lodge true class there methinks.

This is a heart warming tale which is funny, but not side splitting, it has one foot firmly in reality and does not shy away from the real issues that face families at a time of crisis but it does so in a really caring and understanding way. I really enjoyed it and all praise to Screen Australia for putting up the cash, it is great to see some more brilliant antipodean cinema and if you want a real treat check out `The Castle', one of my favourite films ever.

Love this movie. Typical Aussie humour. Paul Hogan is great as Charlie. A sad story at the beginning, but then turns very funny. First saw it on the TV a couple of months ago, and had to have the DVD. This has become a firm favourite, along with 'The Dish'.

A nice gentle tale with a funny and heart warming story line and good scenery along the way, just the job for a winter evening's viewing.

I am fond of Aussie films, comedic ones that is. 'Danny Deckchair', 'The Dish' and the Crocodile Dundee series. This is different, not a bundle of laughs but an honest look at widower-hood and its consequences. But with humour.
