    Oh, it's funny and absurd and creative all right! P.J direction tells me that movies don't have to be perfect, they have their own identity in indie filmmaking. Seriously, I thought this movie was going to suck but truly from my heart- I have space for P.J as a great director. The story, its metallic and full of emotion and comedy. Mental is a super funny ride that needs to be seen again and again. Full Review »

    There's a family of 5 crazy girls…at least the girls think so. After their mom is sent away, dad hires a weirdo (Toni Collette) to watch them. Of course, she does lots more. This film desperately tries to be quirky and there's lots of energy propelling it in that direction. However, it just turns out to be frantic and misguided. When things gets serious in the last 30 minutes, it becomes a bit more compelling. Still, it's simply trying too hard to be cute and charming. Full Review »

    Hysterical. Interesting. Creative. Loved this movie. Loved the filmmaking, the characters, the art direction and design, the story was whacky, and, the acting was superb. Aussie's make the best movies. Full Review »
