Mr. Accident Details


Australian comedian Yahoo Serious wreaks havoc in his third effort as writer, director, and star. Roger Crumpkin (Serious) suffers from "obsessive-compulsive dismantling fixation," which is a fancy way of saying he's always taking things apart that he can't put back together. As a result, disaster follows him like a family of baby ducks trailing after their mother. Roger works for the world's largest free-range egg company, run by cheerful Kelvin Chevalier (Garry McDonald). Kelvin likes Roger and tolerates his ineptitude, but Kelvin's brother Duxton (David Field) does not feel the same way, and when Duxton forces Kelvin out of the firm, Roger is out of a job. Somehow, Roger becomes involved with Duxton's girlfriend Sunday (Helen Dallimore), who isn't much less accident-prone than Roger. Through Sunday, Roger learns that Duxton has an evil scheme to put nicotine in the company's eggs, causing his customers to literally become addicted to his product, and Roger and Sunday set out to stop him -- that is, when they aren't busy breaking things. Mr. Accident was completed in 1999, but wasn't released theatrically until the fall of 2000, its Australian opening coinciding with the Olympic games held in Sydney. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
