Based on a true story, the tale of a cement truck driver named Danny, whose long awaited vacation is cancelled thanks to his scheming girlfriend, Trudy. Danny escapes his grim life in suburban Australia and blasts into the skies in a chair tied with helium balloons. A mighty thunderstorm blows him clean off the map, and spits him out far away over the lush green town of Clarence. In this new town, he rockets into the world of Glenda, the town's only parking cop. While the media back home becomes obsessed with the story of his disappearance, Danny gets to reinvent himself in this new town, and in his great adventure, he discovers a true soul mate in Glenda. Fate catches up with him eventually, as Danny's true identity is revealed and Trudy--now a tabloid celebrity--comes to the idyllic town to claim Danny and drag him back to Sydney. Danny, however, is a changed man; he's discovered what it means to be happy and has found a new self-worth.

Kevin R (fr) wrote: Really good "chick flick"..Kirsten Dunst is the star of this movie. She i gorgeous and multi-talented. Only complaint would be that the male lead is a little too awkward for me. This is the definition of a sleeper! Great smaller role by Martin Short. Don't rule this one out for an entertaining date night for both men and women..

Adam M (mx) wrote: What's there is likeable enough ... but there's not enough. The script is like a booklet of thumbnail sketches for a richer movie about a hitman who has a few remaining drops of emotional vulnerability, with the same actors.
Tristan D (us) wrote: The western theme adds a great deal of charm and much like Buck Privates it is a very full piece of entertainment. Dick Foran does a good job as the romantic lead and The Boys' Indian antics are too much fun. Gotta love the dream sequence too.
Loren R (br) wrote: Obwohl das Schauspiel Ensemble um George Clooney wieder frisch und selbstironisch daherkommt, bleibt der zweite Teil hinter den Erwartungen zurck! Viel zu viel Wirrungen, viele Dialoge und ist auch weniger spannend, als sein Vorgnger. Die zwei Neuzugnge Vincent Cassel und Catherine Zeta-Jones bringen zwar frischen Wind, bringt aber den Filmverlauf auch nicht vorwrts. Leider ist auch die Storyline nicht so originell.Fazit: Eine bessere Idee fr einen Raub htte man haben sollen, bei so vielen Schauspielern!
