I was looking forward to this movie, firstly, because it's Australian and secondly, judging from the trailer it look like it would be fun.

It's the story of Elspeth Dickins (Laura Michelle Kelly) a mother of twin boys whose husband James Dickins (Ronan Keating) is away working a lot, and she stays home on a farm raising the kids. Her husband buys her a web cam to keep in touch, but when he's out of reach she decides to communicate with others out in cyber world. She decides to make up songs about her life to broadcast over the web to a devoted audience.

She gets spotted by corporate executive Cassandra Wolfe (Magda Szubanski) who heads up a computer company and offers her a chance of a lifetime – to represent the Goddess product. Elspeth's adventures unfold as she arrives in Sydney loving every minute of her new fame and fortune - but will Elspeth pick the fame and fortune or her family?

This is a great little film, humorous, with some terrific acting and a good storyline. The only thing that was a little cliché was that Elspeth's character reminded me of Ally McBeal, and also Susan from Desperate Housewives, but I guess that's what made us fall in love with those characters in the first place.

Supporting actors Hugo Johnston-Burt (Ralph) and Dustin Clare (Rory) keep us entertained as does Ronan Keating when he shows us what he can do in the kitchen with just an apron on.

Overall I won't spoil it but this is a feel good movie you will enjoy. Elspeth Dickins is extremely charismatic on screen, and is well cast as the lead. Magda Szubanski also amazing. I give it a 6/10.
