The second film from the team that made The Castle: not quite as successful, but still very good, and in the same ways.

It`s a similar theme to that of The Castle, the first film by Rob Sitch and his Working Dog team, but far, far more successfully handled here. These are wonderful characters, beautifully, subtly drawn and played, and the film is much more than a comedy - though the outcome is well known, there's suspense and a sense of wonder here as these small-town blokes become a crucial cog in one of the most exciting moments in recent history.
