Trailer Park Movie HOUSOS VS AUTHORITY Gets A Trailer

Simon de Bruyn, Contributing Writer
While it would be generous to call Paul Fenech the Rob Schneider of Australia, the writer-direct-actor has definitely invented his own crazy brand of broad puerile humour to which a certain section of the population adores and keeps turning up in droves to see. 

Fenech's career started out brilliantly, when he won the top prize at major short film competition Tropfest, by submitting a film under the pseudonym 'Laura Feinstein' in order to appeal to the sensitivities of the judges, particularly Tropfest founder John Polson, who hoped that a female director would win the award. 

From there came the TV comedy series Pizza, then the spin-off movie Fat Pizza, followed by another TV show Swift and Shift Couriers, and then a third show Housos - a nickname for the main characters who live in government housing estates and trailer parks. And now comes the spin-off movie, Housos vs Authority. Here's the synopsis, and I'm guessing the icon mentioned is Ayers Rock: 

In Housos vs Authority, Franky, Shazza, Dazza and their mates take on every authority possible. Their quest? To sprinkle Shazza's mum's ashes on top of Australia's most famous icon.

Most movie writers won't cover this film due some kind of head-shaking disapproval that these are definitely not the films that should be seen to be Australian. But, much like Fenech, I like diversity, and while his comedy has a mind-splitting effect on me, I do credit him for continually defying the odds with everything he creates - even though most of it is at a level that President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho in Idiocracy would enjoy. 

While it's up to you to decide whether this trailer is safe for your brain, it's not safe for work.

    Is it going to be uncensord unlike fatpizza?

  • Tom Stone

    Not sure. I heard with Fat Pizza that he had a choice between taking the drugs out or censoring it to get the M rating, so he censored it. Maybe it's the same here, although I would hope that he doesn't go that route as that looked and sounded stupid in the cinema.

    Don´t worry about that Mr Stone, my brain melted a long time ago, thanks for the trailer.
