Australia Has Made Some Great Movies Like…
… BREAKER MORANT and ROMPER STOMPER . It has also given us watchable films such as BOOTMEN and THE ODD ANGRY SHOT . Unfortunately for everyone involved in this debacle THE WOG BOY won’t be joining appearing in either list .
I was looking forward to seeing this movie simply because of the politically incorrect title , so politically incorrect that when it was broadcast on BBC 2 late at night the announcer didn’t even mention the movie’s name so I was expecting something so offensively anachronistic that my jaw was going to drop in disbelief . It did drop in disbelief , I found myself not being able to believe that the financiers thought this was going to be a major international hit
The problem lies with the cast and the script . I do know that Australia with its small population doesn’t have a large pool of actors so I’ll be forgiving for the most part , but this doesn’t stop my criticism of Nick Giannopoulos as Steve . For this type of comedy to work you must be impressed with the comic skills of the lead actor and I’m sorry to say but Nick G just doesn’t have the skills . I’d never heard of him and seen nothing else he’s been in so perhaps he’s much better at other performances . Here however he’s just plain irritating , unconvincing and I lost count at the number of times he mugged for the camera . The jokes themselves are very flat and predictable and getting back to the script it seems very under developed , I mean who thought a running gag about a female Minster Of Work who’s having it off in the back of a limousine was funny to begin with ? You do get the feeling that someone in the production should have been more honest and said ” Look mate , this screenplay’s not nearly good enough . Go and make it more subtle and structured ”
I’ve been harsh and harshness has been called for in this review . I gave the movie four out of ten and it would have only got three if it wasn’t for the one genuinely funny sequence where Steve is watching a current affairs show only for himself flashing up on screen and labelled a ” Dole blodger ” . This shows that the screenwriters were aware of comic timing and social comment . Such a pity that they didn’t come with a much better written movie
Sorry but this film was terrible.
It is terrible
Very bad humour
