Movie Reviews

brybrown | Florida | 06/08/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very enjoyable movie, no sex, no violence. It's a pleasure to see a movie like this.Bryan Brown is conman Harry Reynolds who travels to a small Australian beach town with plans to scam the residents. However, his plans change when another conman comes to town and Harry becomes involved with a small boy and his mother.The relationship between the boy and Harry is what makes this movie special.This movie may be predictable but it is, nontheless, very pleasant to watch. Beautiful scenery and good acting."
Thoroughly enjoyable and charming film!
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I was surprised into watching this film one night a few years ago, and am VERY glad I did! Bryan Brown is as robust and clever as always, and the doe-eyed, strong-minded Karen Allen is a perfect foil/love interest for Brown's "Harold Hill"-esque con-man. In fact, this film is quite like The Music Man in many ways, albeit without the music! Brown's scam-artist intends to milk a small coastal town out of it's hard-earned money, but has a change of plans when Allen and her son find their way into his heart. There's comedy and light drama here, and the entire cast seems well suited to the script and storyline. In all, this is a charming film, and if a little predictability can be endured, it will be sure to satisfy."
Emotional at times, well acted, beautiful Aussie scenery

"What a very pleasant surprise to be able to sit down with your family, and watch a most surprising video. Bryan Brown is the usual larrikan he can be. Karen Allen, the cute, bubbly girl next door, and Justin Rosniak. what a find he has been. This child will go a long way in a very fickle industry. Whomever may have cast this young boy, certainly receives top honours. He us extremely professional, and a charming little Aussie. I look forward to Justin Rosniaks next movie................Great viewing"
Very enjoyable, but predictable

"It was an enjoyable movie to watch, but a bit predictable. I think too, that the ending was a cop-out, (the son finding the "article" on the beach towards the end). More time and thought should have occurred in the writing. If more effort had been exerted in the writing of the story line -- this movie would have been as good as LOCAL HERO (with Peter Reigert and Burt Lancaster). But hey, I can't complain. It's a refreshing flick."
