User Reviews: I wasn’t expecting to much from this film on a Sunday afternoon with rain etc. but I was quite surprised. The concept of character saves animals is definitely not original, but I feel the film competes quite well with some of the films that can slip out from Australia. After seeing it once or twice it gets a little tedious, and so do the jokes, even if the film was slightly out of my age group. But the first time I watched it I laughed a little. Even though I had not heard of many actors in the film (if any, given my knowledge on Australian films & TV), they all seemed to be comfortable in their roles. Let’s face it, it was never going to be a big successful movie, but I think, given the time, it could definitely help fill up a rainy day.
