Take away

Threat advisory: High - High risk of entertaining activities

Movie propaganda

Tony Stilano (Vince Colosimo) and Trev Spackneys (Stephen Curry) have a lot in common, they both own take-away fish and chip shops and they both live behind their fish and chip shops. The only problem is they're three doors away from each other in the same suburban Melbourne street. All is relatively well until the announcement of the construction of a multinational Burgies fast food outlet across the road. Tony and Trev are forced into an uneasy partnership and with the help of the community they take on Burgies.

Theatrical report

Underdogs. Tony and Trev take on the evil McDonald's... oops, sorry... Burgie's burger empire - at a local level - and kick them up the bum.

Take away is a Good Little Aussie Film™ replete with crass humour, black humour, piss-takes, bastardy, colour and movement. The only thing it lacks is a nice little death (although most of the characters seem to have parents who are deceased).
