A little surprised to see the rating out of 47 people fairly high. (do we get paid for this?) I'd also like to understand why there are 47 votes and only 2 comments? hmm. For me the movie started quite well since I enjoyed both P Hogan and had a ball at "Kenny" So I went with the story, Dad is depressed at the loss of his wife and Sonny takes the opportunity to rekindle things with dad, so "kidnaps" him for a trip to Cape York that was once something they were going to do as a "father and son's special". So far so good and even a kind of good things to expect in the horizon. But the horizon turns out to be not so great, with some recycled jokes and cheap gags that managed though to get a laugh or two from some of us. My audience was not as generous as the one previously mentioned, some twenty "over the hill" retirees passing through a rather wet "Forster" on the East coast of NSW Autralia. Yes this did not help. I'm surprised that it fell apart this way as I felt that there was some good ingredients in it to develop a reasonable story. But if you are going to give it a go, it won't kill you and whilst you're at it if you're a fan of Hogan watch it till the end of the credit, you should get another smile.
