Police in the tiny Australian town of Sleepy West are baffled by a series of murders in which a biker, a construction worker, a sailor, a cowboy and an Indian are killed.

With the help of a reluctant detective from out of town, the police race to find the killer before one of them turns up dead. Written by Alexander Lum

Beautifully stupid. Cleverly dumb. Brave new comedy!
28 March 2003 | by peterdavisSee all my reviews

When I first read the name of this film and saw the poster I fully expected this to be utter crap.

What a revelation.

I don't rate the premise of this film at all highly. It's just a simple device to stage the most well realised, inspired and observed human comedy seen on film in a good while.

It also captures small town Australia beautifully. So much comedy in the mundanities of life. Director, Mir, an accomplished stand-up comedian exhibits just the right comedy timing on film too.

The Village People are so bad they're..... bad. 15 years ago the slight premise of this film might have seemed funny. I doubt people will rush to see that now... BUT RUSH THEY SHOULD!

I urge you to see this film and I'm bewildered by some of the other responses on this site. I'm reminded of how poorly received the first Austen Powers movie was (slowly building an audience on video, after a pretty dismal cinema run, that ensured the success of the sequels).

With new styles of film comedy, the bandwagon comes later. Check it out now - I want to see more films from these guys!
