Storyline

Shazza Jones is a die-hard resident of "Sunnyvale" the roughest, toughest, meanest area of Australia not yet rejuvenated by the Australian Government. Packed together inside this 'Hope-less' place of low-life, and acutely destitute estate are some of the most inhuman bacterial scourges that are left to their own devices; The Junkies, who will have anything that resembles a valuable meal ticket for their next hit of heroin. The Bikers, headed by Angry (Angry Anderson), whose authority and rule over parts of Sunnyvale echo his warnings to stay out of his way, and then there is Kev, Franky, Shazza and Vanessa - together they make up the estate into what is it today... unbelievable! The story of "Sunnyvale" is told through the experiences and guidance of Shazzas' Uncle Bazza, whose daily life revolves around the slot machines, pub and pleasurable assertions while under the stupor of alcohol. And the story which he tells us is the quest of Shazza scattering her old Mom's ashes of "Aires ... Written by Marcus Kasabian De Storm

Just the worst
21 October 2013 | by john-1952See all my reviews

How can people like this? I guess if you find crime, drugs, vandalism, constant swearing and a bunch of unlikeable morons funny then please feel free to watch this movie. The really sad thing is that there are far too many people who are like the characters in this movie but that does not make them funny. The movie tries to somehow turn a bunch of bludgers terminally sponging off welfare and ensuring their kids will continue the chain, into endearing people and at least in my opinion just reaffirms that society is not heading in the right direction when things like manners, honesty and respect for law are shown as things to be despised.
