Chris Lilley (We Can Be Heroes, Summer Heights High) amps up his acutely observed character-based comedy style in the highly acclaimed mockumentary series Angry Boys. Chris brings to life Daniel and Nathan Sims, identical twins who live on a farm in Dunt, South Australia; Ruth Sims, aka Gran, a prison guard who works at a juvenile justice centre for boys; U.S. rapper S.mouse, who finds himself on house arrest after doing a poo on a police car; former world surfing champion Blake Oakfield, a surf gang leader who lost his balls in a shooting; and Jen Okazaki, domineering mother/manager of her skateboarding champion son and creator of the Gaystyle Enterprises empire.

We also get to see the lives of their `Legends', who are all being invited to the party. These heroes are surfing legend Blake Oakfield, African American rapper Schwayne Jr who is also called S.mouse! and has all the intellect of a door mouse and a girlfriend with the best name ever - Lasquisha. Chris Lilley plays both of these too. Then their third `Legend' is skate boarding hero Tim Okazaki, who has inspired his over controlling mother to turn him into a global brand, based on the fact that he is gay and therefore everything is `Gay Style', problem is that Tim is in fact straight. His mum is played by Chris too and is my favourite character in the whole show, but they are all pretty good if not excellent.
There are twelve episodes and the stories are all woven together really well and this is done in a documentary style, with interview pieces to camera as well as action footage. The humour can be quite gross in places especially where the twins are concerned and the language can be quite adult, but I just loved it heaps and was totally stoked by it enough to watch it twice. So if a bit of down under humour is your thing then you won't go far wrong with Angry Boys - oh and the opening titles are great too - ripper!
Lilley is convincing as himself or a teenage boy, or girl or mid life female prison officer...the list is endless but I find him original, unassuming and so very, very, funny. This DVD's a cracker.
Blakey is great as an overgrown man-child still surfing and running with his street gang......all this even though he had his testicles blown off in a fight.
How Lilley intertwines comedy with emotional scenes is a gift not to many can match.
This type of comedy is not for everyone, fans of "When the whistle blows" or "Mrs BB'S" steer clear.
One more thing: doesn't bother me but may bother some more sensitive souls, there is A LOT of swearing. From Daniel and S.Mouse, especially. Like, a lot. Also veryyy dirty/crude humour. Wouldn't watch it with my mother. Oh well, her loss!
Anyone who loves comedy (and is not easily offended..!) will love this series. I can't wait to see what he has planned next!
