Hi All,
This isn't really a movie...but it is a TV program.
It is a Australian program that takes off anybody or anything....
It is really funny.
You can check out some clips on the Chasers website:

or one of their clips on Youtube...this is one of my favourites:

Enjoy and tell me what you think!

Why does nobody like them? I think they are funny.

I think not that many people watch this, given it's an Australian program and not available to the US through public media channels, with the exception of YouTube.

Being an Australian resident, I'm quite familiar with the Chaser and their antics- as a matter of fact they were students at the same high school that I went to (and even worked on the same satirical school publication that I did!)

I'm not sure whether I like them or not, or whether they go too far, or treat certain subjects in an overly puerile manner, but I do know that they've made some very incisive points as well as served as a very strong cultural beacon capable of provoking reaction in almost anybody and everybody.

My particular highlight would have been their masquerading as a Canadian motorcade at the APEC summit and slipping straight through the security all the way to the red zone. Classic.
