Simplistic and sometimes painfully goofy, this Australian musical comedy only holds the attention by occasionally touching on some real relational issues. Otherwise, filmmaker Mark Lamprell lets the tone veer so wildly from colourful wackiness to dark emotions that nothing is particularly believable. Even the one big theme, about how much a woman is willing to give up for fame, is undercooked, as it were.
The woman in question is Elspeth (Laura Michelle Kelly), who lives in an idyllic farmhouse in rural Tasmania taking care of her tearaway twin toddlers (Levi and Phoenix Morrison) while her husband Jimmy (Ronan Keating) works with whales in Antarctica. Far away from their family and friends in Britain, Elspeth expresses herself by cooking up a storm and writing songs about her life as a domestic goddess. And when she creates a webcam blog so Jimmy can see her little performances, she becomes an internet sensation, catching the eye of corporate shark Cassandra (Magda Szubanski) in Sydney. But if Elspeth wants to pursue stardom, she'll need to leave her boys with a sitter (Celia Ireland) and put even more distance between her and Jimmy.
The relatively simplistic plot never puts too much pressure on Elspeth, despite several further wrinkles, including an amorous busker (Spartacus star Dustin Clare) in Sydney and a young hottie (Lucy Durack) back home to tempt Jimmy. But really Jimmy is the nicest, most helpful hunk any girl could want. And the film's funniest strand involves all of Elspeth's neighbours falling for him as they watch their relationship unfold on the internet like some sort of hidden-camera reality show. But nothing feels remotely realistic, especially the way people laugh uproariously at Elspeth's cute but resolutely unfunny webcasts. At least Kelly fills the screen with bubbly energy, while Szubanski spices things up with another wildly nutty performance (and the show-stopper musical number). By contrast, the sexy men are merely around to complicate Elspeth's decision-making.

Pat Clifton has long nursed a passion for delivering mail as the much-loved postman of Greendale; his generosity and determination making him one of the most efficient mailmen in the country. What most people don't know is that he has another love in his life - and we're not talking about his beloved cat Jess. When a national televised talent competition travels to the village to hold auditions, those who know of his talent urge him to try out. To everyone's delight, the formidable judge Simon Cowbell is blown away by Pat's remarkable singing voice, and he quickly becomes an overnight sensation. However, his new career path takes him away from Greendale postal duties to the residents' panic, and a replacement must be made. Unfortunately, Pat has an adversary who is planning to use a series of terrifying Pat-like robots to take over the world.
Pat Clifton is well-known in the village of Greendale for, not only his prompt and polite deliveries having been in the postal business for many years, but for frequently taking it upon himself to help out his friends and neighbours in other areas of their lives. It appears, however, that delivering letters and parcels and saving his village isn't the only talent this postman has. When he discovers that a televised talent competition is holding auditions in the town, he is encouraged to try out. Much to everyone's surprise, his flawless singing voice renders the judges, led by Simon Cowbell, completely blown away and his rise to stardom begins. However, a singing career means that he won't have a lot of time to continue his postal duties, something that causes major chaos when his adversary replaces him with a series of frightening mail-robots hell bent on world domination.
