Grill it and they will come.

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.

...the latest in Australia's long line of generally affable homegrown comedies...

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

The Guardian

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

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