Product Overview

Malcolm is a chronically shy mechanical genius who has just been fired for building his own tram. He gets Frank and his girlfriend Judith to move in to help pay the bills. They may not be the most ideal of tenants but bring love, laughter and excitement into Malcolm's otherwise humdrum life. When Malcolm convinces them that his skills with inventing things could come in handy with their line of work - stealing things - the three join forces on a madcap robbery spree. Once Malcolm's mechanical genius and Frank's criminal aptitude finally click, the trio pull off the most outrageous heist ever filmed! Starring Colin Friels, Linda Davies, Chris Haywood and John Hargeaves. The Widescreen Collector's Edition of Malcolm includes theatrical trailer and bonus materials.

ReviewSource In Film Australia
Review This gradually affecting misfit adventure starring Colin Friels as a geeky genius inventor is a quirky and affable comedy with a handful of memorable moments...After being fired from his job for unruly inventing, Malcolm (Friels) decides to supplement his income by taking a tenant into his home...Malcolm's wacky flair for creating oddly practical machinery however gels seamlessly with the underworld, and he becomes the humble coordinator of some wonderfully orchestrated comic heists...Those who've seen this genial little film will no doubt recall Malcolm's superb getaway vehicle - a car which literally splits in half - as well as his feisty robot rubbish bins that make the perfect perpetrators of a bank robbery...Director Nadia Tass' pace is stifling and slow at times, as if she needed a potent energy drink to pep her up before the shoot. Once the film gets going however all is forgotten and Malcolm becomes an endearing and memorable suburban adventure.
