Slapstick from down under featuring Aussie comedian Yahoo Serious as a madcap scientist who puts the bubbles in beer before inventing the surfboard, the electric guitar and rock & roll.
There's a couple of funny moments, but the film prides itself on being silly. The lead actor didn't receive any more exposure outside his native homeland as this film intended him to, which is a small pity, as he's the funniest thing about this film (but this could be because the rest of the performances are grating). 
It's all relative, you don't need to be a genius to have a laugh at some complete nonsense... and although it's all quite puerile, it is insanely fun.
5/10
