Description

    When Charlie McFarlane (Paul Hogan) withdraws from his life after a family tragedy, his estranged son, "Boots" (Shane Jacobson) decides to drag his reluctant father on a trip to fulfil 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. This heartfelt journey shows two of Australia's great comic talents in a story that will touch your soul as well as make you smile. Directed by Dean Murphy (Strange Bedfellows) this film will show that family ties, no matter how imperfect, are the ties that truly bind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This will become an Aussie Classic This movie has a bit of a slow start but soon starts to pick up speed with a heavy dose of classic Aussie humour. You will soon find yourself getting involved in this story and often you feel like you are sitting in the back seat on this hilarious but also extremely poignant and sometimes emotional road trip. A vast amount of the humour will sail high over the heads of non-aussies but it has my family and I in stitches. Keep your ears open for lots of little side jokes that slip in from some of the other classic movies that these to funny blokes have become famous for over the years. There is even a reference to Paul Hogan's much earlier career. This movie has probably already become one of the classics of Australian cinema.
