Probably the best film in the world...ever!, 26 April 2003
To say this is a feel good film is rather an understatement... A fabulously funny and poignant script, wonderfully overstated performances, an ending that leaves you bursting with happiness and, of course, catchphrases a-plenty...
When I first saw this film, I had no expectations - all I knew was that my friend told me I'd love it. He was right. And every time I see it, I only love the Kerrigan family & friends all the more. The narrator, Dale, with his simplistically positive view on life; the great ‘Aussie Battler’ Daryl, whose love for his family, his home and his wife’s cooking is unsurpassed; lawyer Dennis Denuto (as seen on TV) who gives us one of the greatest ‘summing up’ speeches a court room has ever seen; the warm, calm and peaceful Lawrie, who steps in to save the day.
I cannot recommend this film highly enough. It’s a tale about people who love and care for each other and who are genuinely happy with their ... lot, as well as being pant-wettingly funny. What more could you want?
