When dwindling membership and increasing overheads makes a local bowling club and prime candidate for a takeover, it's all hands on deck to save the club, in what turns into an epic battle where young meets old, greed meets good and people rise to the occasion in extraordinary circumstances.Written by
The scenes set at "Cityside Bowls Club" were shot at Melbourne Bowling Club in the inner-city suburb of Windsor. Founded in 1864, Melbourne Bowling Club is Australia's oldest lawn bowls club. See more »
The 'Flipper', where the bowl curves in both directions, is utterly impossible. See more »
Right from the start, it felt like I just needed to stretch out in a pair of old trakky pants, 'me ugg boats' and kick back to enjoy. I love Aussie films as I do not need to strain or listen hard to work out what's been said. I also love the simpleness, there is nothing glamorous about the content of this movie, it gave us a 'warts and all' impression of Melbournian inner suburban living. There was something cultural about this movie also. These were Australians that weren't trying to be anyone but themselves. The sarcasm and the jokes were flying nicely and not too much 'in ya face humour' either. Mick Molloy and Judith Lucy (both renown comedians) slid into this movie as if they both love ambling around in front of the lens. Although Mick Molloy probably knew this wasn't going to be Box office hit of the century- thanks to him and the crew for making a movie that wasn't seriously insulting our sense of humour.
