Did You Know?

Trivia

The town's football team are called the Dropbears. Dropbears are a fictional predatory creature said to resemble a koala which drop from trees onto human victims. They are generally used as an in-joke on tourists. See more »

Goofs

At the roadworks, the driver states he's "been waiting for 42 min". No traffic controller would ever make a vehicle wait for that long (15min maximum waiting times). Also no traffic controller would walk off the job site (for any reason) without first informing his supervisor, or just ask a road worker to take over traffic control duties. Traffic controllers in Australia must be accredited as such. If you're not accredited as 1, you cant perform as 1. See more »

Loved it. Dollar for dollar, this film delivers where bigger budgets and bigger names have failed.
