A must see for all Kath and Kim fans
Da Kath & Kim Code is the first feature length film, based on the ever-popular Australian television series Kath & Kim. It is a made for television movie and is set between the last episode of season 3 and the first episode of season 4 of the show.
Kath and Kim's first ever movie
The film is set just after Kath and her husband Kel have come back from their Da Vinci Code themed holiday and while everyone is busy getting prepared for Christmas and being distracted by the new dramas in Kim's unhappy marriage, some very strange and mysterious things begin to happen.
Strange packages start to appear, including a bible and a painting of the last supper, with Kath and Kel's faces photoshopped into it. Kel is also almost run down by a mad driver and an albino monk in robes is seemingly stalking them.
Meanwhile, Kim is dealing with the fact that her husband may be cheating on her again and her second best friend, Sharro,n has met the man of her dreams online and has paid to bring him to Australia, so they can tie the knot - but is it all too good to be true?
This is a very funny film, with hilarious references to the popular Da Vinci Code books and films, as well as general observations on the Australian way of life, as well as world issues, some of which we are still facing today.
There is also no end to celebrity appearances, including Michael Buble and the original lineup of The Wiggles, just to name a few.
Can you crack da code?
If you are a fan of Kath and Kim, then this film is an absolute must see and will be treasured for many years to come.
Da Kath and Kim Code is rated PG, as it contains mild course language and mild sexual references.
