Plot synopsisEdit

Billy (Xavier Samuel) and Lucy (Morgan Griffin) grew up together in a small town in Australia, where they form one of the town's most formidable ute driving teams. Lucy declares she is moving to the city after Billy makes a risky car stunt, sending him into a spin. Amid the mayhem of the town's annual Bachelor and Spinster Ball, Billy only has one night to reveal his true feelings to his best friend or lose her forever.



Reviews for the film had mostly been negative. The film holds a 13% rotten rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, with an average score of 3.7/10.[1] Leigh Paatsch of the Herald Sun gave the film a rating of 1 and said "How did this ever get made? And when will it ever end?"[2] Jake Wilson of The Sydney Morning Herald gave it 2 stars and described it as "the glamorised version of rural Australia we're used to seeing on commercial TV." He stated that Samuel's character was the opposite to how he's made out in the film, as a "good-looking captain" instead of a rugged outdoor type he's described as.[3]
