Storyline

Gina Katz is fired for being seven minutes late every morning, despite the best sales in the telemarketing firm. Refused entry to the bar where she went to drown her sorrow as inappropriately dressed, she spends her last cash on a 'power suit', and gets wined by two flashy businessmen- only to find they are conmen, brothers and former window-washers: assertive Ethan and timid Larsy Foster, looking for 'investors' to sell shares to in their empty ICT holding company 'Go Big', which she joins. Together they concentrate on the big fish: Hamish Fitz-Herbert, heir to one of Australia's largest fortunes, and gullible enough to bid $100,000,000 once their desperate efforts to meet him succeed; meanwhile Ethan and Gina become lovers. After a spectacular stock exchange launch and price sky-rise, they discover suspicious 'coincidences', and their own shares are locked in escrow for twelve months. Even if Hamish is an easy prey, are his model-girlfriend and dad's eyes Ian Patterson? Written by KGF Vissers

Would you buy a used big business from this man? or this woman?
15 March 2004 | by wombat_1See all my reviews

Advertised as a "feel good" movie (whatever that is), I found this to be quite an enjoyable, amusing, engrossing and totally unbelievable (not that that matters) story. Having said that, I'm sure that I've purchased more than one product that was created, or at least promoted, in the way that this movie portrayed :-)

Alex Dimitriades was debonair as ever - Australia's answer to Pierce Brosnan. Tom Long showed an equal panache.

Wasn't sure about Justine Clark. She put her heart and soul into her role, but to me she was trying to be a bit too much Bridget Jones. Kimberley Joseph wasn't given too much to do (I'm not trying to make a cheap shot here, but after all she was given the role of the supermodel who had become a trophy fiance!), but it looked like she has risen above being a soapie star.

It's always good when there are recognizeable "real life" personalities in these movies, and they were quite a few of them. I find that this blend of fiction and I suppose "reality" is the word (as distinct from "reality TV shows"!) goes over very well.

One specific plot criticism. I do think that the way Gina was portrayed as handling her father's 60th birthday could have been done with a little more.... sensitivity.

This is the sort of comedy movie that Hollywood churns out in its sleep with its eyes closed, and often it shows. But this Oz-made movie is as least as good as any of them. It was funny, it held my attention, I could talk about it afterwards. I think it achieved everything it set out to do.
