Blurred is the great story about a roadtrip undertaken by kids at the end of their high school education on the way to the Gold Coast for "Schoolies Week". It's the end of the year celebration of heady times, sex, alcohol and drugs. This film follows several groups as they make their way via different modes of transport all to the same destination and ultimately how all their stories intertwine.

I likened this feature to something sort of along the lines of American Pie, or more aptly Roadtrip. There are a heap of laughs and also that underlying sense of a bit of bawdiness that gives it all a bit of fun and makes it such an enjoyable watch. I am sure there are things in this film that will either have you shuddering or possibly nodding your head in remembrance of your own misdeeds whilst at schoolies week. This is one film that is almost guaranteed to turn your stomach whilst at the same time have you rolling with laughter. It's a very fun watch and certainly worth 95 minutes out of your life.

The DVD itself is wonderfully transferred and is shown in widescreen format. It's a crisp picture the whole way through and whilst not pushing any new boundaries as far as cinematography is concerned, is certainly a great looking movie.

Audio is also taken care of with Dolby Digital being our format of choice. It's encoded in 5.1 surround and takes advantage of all speakers when pertinent. The audio commentary is in Dolby 2.0 however this does not affect the quality of this particular track at all.

The extras on the disc are worth your time exploring, and aside from the commentary, a personal favourite was Mick & Trav's Guide to Blurred, which showed behind the scenes of the movie and was a very funny  thing to watch indeed. Also be sure to watch the short film "Mate" which is guaranteed to give you a chuckle.

Recommended.
