    And I will get mocked massively for this but Muriel’s Wedding is a good flick I pretend not to like when the wife puts it on, but secretly kinda like

    Why would you get mocked, Muriels Wedding is a great movie, it has moments that can make you laugh and moments that could make you cry, I always love the last scene when they say goodbye Porpoise Spit. If you get the chance go and see the stage show, it was brilliantly done.

    Yep I saw the stage show too mate.

    As much as it’s a bit of fun on ABBA, truthfully it’s a well told story of characters who are all hiding behind facades.

    The mother's passing in the stage show was so well done, it heavily relied on ABBA and could have been corny but was pulled off nicely, It actually felt like a feel good moment instead of being sad.

    Most of what has already been listed by others, but my top 5 would look something like

    * Mad Max
    * Crocodile Dundee
    * Two Hands
    * The Castle
    * Stir (based upon the Bathurst Gaol riot in 1974)
