In the laugh-filled tradition of The Full Monty, The Castle is a hilarious comedy treat critics are calling one of the year's funniest movies! Even though there's an airport practically running through their backyard, the eccentric Kerrigan clan loves their humble home. But when the airfield needs room to expand, the government says that the Kerrigans have got to go!
With an irresistible charm and irrepressible humour everyone is sure to enjoy, the hilarity then really takes flight when this funny family decides to stay and fight for their beloved "Castle" no matter how far the conflict goes!
The Castle is a sweeping saga that takes the harsh Australian outback, the rugged characters of the ANZAC legend, the spirit of Banjo Patterson and ignores them in favour of a greyhound racing, tow truck driver who never meant to be a hero. Since its theatrical release The Castle has become an iconic Australian comedy with phrases such as Hows the serenity, This is going straight to the pool room and Tell him he's dreaming now a part of Australian cultural lingo.
Oh the serenity - aussie classic - when the piracy video plays and talks about Australia makes great films. this is the movie they are talking about plus mad max as well. ultra quotable 'that's going straight to the pool room' this should go straight to your dvd collection. totally worth it. 4 stars plus
