Critics reviews

In the clear light of day, I would probably admit that Les Patterson Saves the World is not a particularly great movie. But seeing it at the (ahem) World Premiere in Sydney amidst a highly cultured audience . . . I definitely warmed to it. For, as Les himself might say, his film certainly put it up this urbane audience, who walked out murmuring their outrage and disappointment.
