Storyline

After an all-expenses-paid trip to exotic early-1980s Thailand, the TV repairman and gullible first-time drug mule, Ray Jenkins, finds himself in police custody at Melbourne Airport, with his stomach crammed with twenty sachets filled with heroin. Locked in a hotel room under Detective Paris and Detective Croft's around-the-clock supervision, Ray has to endure seven gut-wrenching, sphincter-clenching days to convince the authorities of his innocence. Now, an agonising battle of wills commences, as Ray struggles not to crack. Will nature take its course? Written by Nick Riganas

Surprisingly good
7 December 2014 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

The title is a bit of a giveaway, but only so much. Because the movie might still be able to surprise you. I know it did surprise me a lot. To a certain point it was like "Alright, I know what comes next". But then you have a twist that is very nice. And even though a certain amount of knowledge comes with that and a familiarity that will have people in the know again, it is certainly entertaining. Considering that this really happened (similar to what we get treated to on screen), this is even more amazing.

The actors are having a lot of fun and everything is being laid there for everyone to see. Some material might feel a bit too much, but you can still feel that there is a logic behind it and even the most yucky scene is served for a purpose ... and for fun - and it works most of the time.
