Get your silly-mid-on with this hilarious ‘bromantic comedy’ that follows a D-grade cricket team from the suburbs of Melbourne to the subcontinent of India. Blagging his way into a sponsorship deal on false pretences, the Abbotsford Anglers president Teddy (Stephen Curry) convinces his ramshackle club to rise to the challenge. Together they embark on a tour that is memorable for what happens off the field and laughable for what happens on it. Failing to notice the shifting priorities of his mates, along with the attentive glances of the sponsor’s gorgeous daughter Anjali (Pallavi Sharda), the gullible Teddy is about to learn – Bollywood-style – that some things in life are more important than cricket. Written by actor Brendan Cowell (The Slap), Save Your Legs! was inspired by director Boyd Hicklin’s documentary of the same name about a tour by the real-life team on which the story is based.
