Critic Reviews for Crackerjack

All Critics (8)

More subtle than his stand-up or television act, Crackerjack is an adult comedy, like Waking Ned Devine, that even your grandmother can appreciate the somewhat risque humour of.

It is beautifully calm, warmly humorous, and altogether very,veryAustralian.

July 8, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Such a comfy, well-executed version of what it is that it still feels rather special.

August 29, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

a quaint, characteristically Australian and mostly witty feature film...The best Australian comedy of the year

November 5, 2002 | Rating: 3/5

A script with genuine affection for its characters and a less than bombastic approach to the humour.

Light-hearted Aussie comedy where the ageing members of a bowling club facing closure bring in a youngster to help win the inter-club tournament and save the club.
