Knocked for Six (Save Your Legs)
For Edward 'Teddy' Brown, it's not just the end of Summer; it's the end of an era. In a desperate bid to wind back the clock and cling to his childhood dreams, Teddy leads his two best mates and their cowboy cricket club on an audacious tour of India, winning friends but losing matches all the way. Save Your Legs! is a wild rickshaw ride from the suburbs to the Subcontinent, where stumps fly, friendships fray and mates learn that the biggest shots in life are played off the field.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The cast are amiably geeky and blokey, but there's an underlying air of Aussie jingoism which perhaps doesn't quite travel."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"It's amiably played, with Bollywood and dysentery jokes mostly hitting the mark."
‑ Matt Glasby, Total Film
"Cowell and Curry give endearing performances as man-boys who are forcefully and finally shoved out of adolescence and into adulthood at the ripe old age of thirty-five. As a lighthearted, nostalgia-drenched film, Save Your Legs! hits a six."
‑ Lauren Carroll Harris, Concrete Playground
"Tame Aussie bromantic comedy pushes no boundaries."
‑ Don Groves, sbs.com.au
"It's a comedy that relies on its semi-serious premise, written by the actor Brendan Cowell who also stars, and it helps if you are a cricket tragic"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"You probably have to be very into cricket, and be of a very indulgent disposition to really like it."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Fantastic, fabulously funny, feel-good Aussie comedy... a near-perfect blend of broad comedy and travelogue."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"What seriously irks about Ocker cinema is that when movies aren't about 'kitchen sink' agonisers following the depressing plight of Croatian immigrants, they're, instead, painfully contrived, calculatedly 'feel-good' outings like this."
‑ David 'Mad Dog' Bradley, Rip It Up
"[Stephen Curry] manages to put a few runs on the board for the Aussie cricket flick Save Your Legs, elevating Boyd Hicklin's spritely if not particularly funny flick to the realm of 'watchable.'"
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"Cricket, enlightenment and embracing change are the themes for this slight Aussie comedy that is amiable enough with its bunch of rowdy, likeable characters, but just like what happens on the pitch, nothing really fires"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"Not without its charms, but instantly forgettable."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"Doesn't rest on being a film just about sport. Whether you're familiar with cricket or not, the themes of camaraderie are strong and it's worth being a spectator"
‑ Cameron Williams, The Popcorn Junkie
"As a comedy that largely operates on a fish-out-of-water travelogue trajectory, predictably embracing that old chestnut about what Indian food can do to a white person's digestive system, Save Your Legs! struggles."
‑ Luke Buckmaster, Crikey
"Hits a six at every turn. The humour may be gentle, but it's always sharp. Tellingly, not a single gag falls flat. A wonderfully unexpected delight."
‑ Ed Gibbs, The Sunday Age
"Save Your Legs does little favours for either the sport of cricket or the country of Australia."
‑ Shaun Munro, What Culture
