Jack Flange (Alex O'Lachlan), a native of Sydney, loves the city life. But when he learns his sister, Nikki (Claudia Harrison), is injured, he heads for her small beachfront town to help out. Initially taking on backbreaking work as an oyster farmer to cover Nikki's hospital bills, Jack finds that he needs more cash than the job brings in. After falling for a local girl and having run-ins with his boss and his ex-wife, Jack hatches a plan to recover a batch of missing cash that has been stolen.

  • Fails to overcome its hokey script and cliched characterizations. show more

  • The realistic scenes of oyster farming and the beauty of the Hawkesbury River lend this movie a degree of fascination that its taciturn, beer-swilling characters can't provide. show more

  • There are the makings of a funny movie here, but novice director-writer Anna Reeves isn't up to the job. While her cast is talented, Reeves doesn't concentrate long enough on any plotline or character to build viewer interest. show more
