It’s amazing what money can buy these days –in the case of the feeble Aussie pic “Irresistible” it’s a couple of big-name international stars who’re prepared to turn up in Australia and read lines cold.

Susan Sarandon wouldn’t have been easy to coax into a small Australian film, especially one that’s not even much chop, so it’s fairly obvious the makers of the new Melbourne-set thriller had some cash up their sleeve. The fact that Sam Neill and rising starlet Emily Blunt (“The Devil Wears Prada”) feature in the main co-starring parts is even further corroboration that the production wasn’t short of a penny.

What they are short of though… is a clue.

If the filmmakers had tried to get “Irresistible” up without it’s “all star cast” it might never happened. There’s no way an investor with half-a-brain would pour his or her money into such an old-hat piece of rubbish.

Sarandon plays Sophie Hartley, an artist and wife of a prominent Australian businessman (Sam Neill), whose suddenly convinced that that someone – most likely her hubby’s co-worker, played by Emily Blunt – is trying to steal her children, her husband: her life.

For all intents and purposes, “Irresistible” is a bad film in good film’s clothing – looks appealing on the outside but on the inside its as hollow as an Easter egg – think “The Temp” or “The Hand that Rocks the Cradle” but with some super-fine talent up front and some compelling cinematography. The fact that it’s set in Melbourne gives it another element… I guess… but not enough of an element to make it any less dreary though.

Remember for next time guys, it’s quality not quantity that matters in the long run.
