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'.

What to say here? It's a road movie about a father and son played by Paul Hogan and Shane Jacobson respectively. After the untimely death of their wife and mother, the two end up on a long cross country journey to go fishing at the northern tip of Australia. They have previously never gotten on together, their differences seemingly impossible to put aside, but this trip will bring about many revelations, truths, pains and maybe even laughter?

The Australian landscape photography (Roger Lanser) is as stunning as the simplicity of screenplay, with the humour and emotional wallops delivered with great skill by Hogan and Jacobson. The message of it all is not heavily handled by director Dean Murphy, he and his team take us on a journey that rings true, one that brings hope to the many who need a prompt, a push in the right direction. Because it's true you know, life really is too short.

A lovely and heart warming movie that's also very funny as well. It deserves to be better known. 8/10

I saw this film on the aircraft returning from Sydney to UK. A lovely reminder of the beautiful country we had just left and when I saw it available on Amazon, wanted to see it again. I have not been disappointed and truly think it should be on the Australia Tourist Board for a great advert for their wonderful country. The photography of the local scenery is breath taking.
The story is good too. The way a grieving widower is reconciled to an estranged son, who is determined to get his father out of the misery of grief that has overtaken him, is brilliantly told . I loved this film , one I will watch many times.

We really enjoyed this film. Two main actors were great. A lot of funny moments as well as a few sad ones. A memorable film and one we'll watch again.

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.

An amusing comedy with a heartfelt message. Paul Hogan plays a perfect part as the initially curmudgeonly, unwilling passenger when his son, played by Shane Jacobson, decides to travel to the northern tip of Australia to take his father fishing. The film gives us a view of the many facets of the Australian scenery and the amusing characters and incidents they meet along the way.
