Not Suitable for Children: Film Review
Sydney Film Festival
Ryan Kwanten, Sarah Snook, Ryan Corr, Bojana Novakovic
Peter Templeman's debut feature, a rom-com starring "True Blood's" Ryan Kwanten, has sex, drugs and-rock n' roll.
SYDNEY -- Buying into the philosophy of its slacker protagonist, amiable Australian rom-com Not Suitable for Children coasts along on the considerable charm of its leads without doing much work. A vivid inner-Sydney setting and an amped soundtrack can’t quite conceal the deep-seated lassitude, although there’s pleasing distraction in the form of Ryan Kwanten as a wannabe baby daddy.
