Bogan Pride

From the strange mind of Rebel Wilson (Toula from Fat Pizza, The Wedge and Ghost Rider) comes Bogan Pride, a musical comedy that involves almost every Australian stereotype and cliché.

The star of the series is Rebel Wilson who plays Jenny Cragg, a teenager who lives in the "Bogan" suburb of Boonelg and is on a quest to save her obese mother. Fortunately for Jenny, she has two close friends to assist who not only help her out but also attempt to prevent Jenny from falling for a boy. Because this is not the Christian thing to do and as her friends would say, this would derail the Jesus Train.

The characters are quite quirky and hilarious at times, however as mentioned Wilson is the star of the series and really lends herself to this character in this delightful comedy about the world of Bogans. Without being gruff, she really takes the piss out of herself, whether it's her "fake" pubic hair or the costumes she wears in the final episode, it's classic Australian comedy.

It should also be noted that this series is quite politically incorrect that is a breath of fresh air in this politically correct world. Featuring a making of documentary, this nicely rounds out this collection of politically incorrect humour. Bogan Pride is here to say and is definitely for those who enjoyed Fat Pizza!

EPISODE LISTING

EPISODE ONE - THE FUGLY FRINGE

It's January, summer in Boonelg, and just before school starts back for teenage fugly Jennie Cragg the hunk of her grade, Nick Lazzarri, returns from being in a juvenile detention facility. Jennie has always had a huge crush on Nick and decides that, seeing as this is her last year at Boonelg High, this is the year she has to become "cool" and make a move. She dyes her fringe blonde and buys a whole bain marie of mini pizzas for Nick from the school canteen but she is no match for the school's head skank Tracy Hooker.

EPISODE TWO - THE PARACHUTE OF HEALING

Jennie's mother Berenice has been chair bound for weeks after a nasty spider bite on her leg but the Doctor assesses that her main problem is obviously her morbid obesity. Cassandra however is more concerned with the well-being of her new cat Chinnie and with exploiting the "special needs" adults that she is supposed to be caring for. Jennie tries to help her mother lose weight but after the "Tummy Tumbler" proves ineffective Jennie and her friends enlist the help of their G.L.S. spiritual leaders (God's Love Society) Miss La Mont and Miss Butcher and they hold a cult-like intervention.

EPISODE THREE - THE MATHS OLYMPIAD

For Jennie and her joint best friends, Amy Lee and Nigella, the Maths Olympiad is the highlight of their academic calendar but when it seems that Amy Lee has found a boyfriend on an opposing team Jennie becomes jealous and the girls? competitive natures are unleashed.

EPISODE FOUR - THE ROLLER SKANK RINK

The Doctor has informed Berenice that she will need a stomach stapling operation which will cost $10 000 or else her future does not look very...large. Desperate now to help her mother Jennie asks Aunty Cassandra, who seems to have been quite entrepreneurial in the past, to help her fundraise and Cassandra suggests she sell "bonsai cats." Jennie then encounters her father Burt, a compulsive gambler, and he recommends that Jennie should give him all of her savings, saying that he could turn them into $10 000 easily.

EPISODE FIVE - THE NEED FOR MONGS

After a sign from God, Jennie and her friends decide to enter the upcoming "Let's Get It On" dance battle which has a first prize of $10 000. After initial rehearsals it appears that their dance abilities aren't nearly as good as their mathematical prowess so Jennie hunts around the school for people with ?mega mad dance skills? to join their squad so that they may have a hope of beating the school skanks: Tracy, Tizzneen and Tessa. Simultaneously Cassandra is sacked from her position as a professional carer due to her negligence but then discovers that one of her charges, Marilyn, has won a colouring-in competition and that she'll need her to collect the prize. Additionally it is revealed that Nigella's mother has been poisoning her which is the cause of all her strange allergies and illnesses.

EPISODE SIX - THE DANCE BATTLE

Cassandra uses Jennie as a replacement mong in order to collect the prize for the colouring-in competition which Jennie learns to be $10 000. Jennie begs her Aunty to give the money to her mother for the stomach stapling operation but Cassandra insists that she needs it to go to Vanuatu and win back her husband. In order to help Jennie win the dance battle, the hugely obese Berenice uses all of her willpower to get up and go on a mission to find Jennie some nice costumes. Yet before she gets anywhere she becomes lodged in the front seat of her car. Jennie prays with the help of the G.L.S. and enlists Nick into her dance battle team but will this be enough to win? Or will the now cashed-up Cassandra change her selfish ways and save her sister?
