User Reviews: Saw this late on ABC, can see why they put it on in middle of night. This is amateur hour, watching this ‘car crash’,the dialogue, editing and special effects – shark/seal scene! – get worse and worse. When the 2 larrikins get honked by garbage truck and their retort is "Up yours, garbage breath", scriptwriters! Then when there is a drag between PC and the yobbos the dueling banjos start. Only interest is seeing young Kidman, Matt Parkinson and Alan Dale (Dr Karl) ironically in the band, Karl nursing muso ambitions early on.

On a side note, it would be more helpful and balanced if negative and positive reviews were put up as it seems that user reviews are only added when someone really likes the film. This leaves the user reviews unbalanced and some ‘terrible’ films get very high rating. Subjective, of course
