The BBQ

Australian cook-off comedy starring Shane Jacobson (Kenny), Magda Szubanski (TV's Kath & Kim) and Manu Feildel (TV's My Kitchen Rules).

Darren 'Dazza' Cook (Jacobson) is a loveable suburban everyman who harbours a passion for barbequing, but when he accidentally gives his neighbours food poisoning, his reputation and dignity are on the line. To make amends he seeks tutelage from the tyrannical Scottish chef known simply as The Butcher (Szubanski). Together they enter an international barbecue competition, pitting Dazza’s homespun recipes against the world’s best BBQ chefs.

It’s filled with racial stereotypes, dumb dialogue and inept subplots, and few things about Stephen Amis’s film make sense.

The BBQ starts with a terrible script and goes downhill from there.

The new Australian comedy The BBQ is so overwhelmingly bland, you often forget how faintly awful it consistently remains from beginning to end.
