Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Sydneysider Danny Morgan, a simple man who works for a concrete company, is prone to daydreaming to escape his life, those daydreams often of his unique ideas. Of late, those daydreams have been about his and his longtime girlfriend Trudy Dunphy’s imminent vacation, a camping trip which Danny has been planning for a year. Eventually learning that Trudy, a real estate agent, lied to get out of the trip to spend time with a famous client, television sportscaster Sandy Upman, is just the latest manifestation that Trudy is drifting away from Danny, who she sees as just a concrete man while she aspires to something or someone more exciting like Sandy. With the vacation now a no-go leaving him with a couple of weeks free with nothing to do but have his mind wander, Danny, with an unexpected windfall of free giant balloons, ponders whether they, filled with helium and tied to a deckchair, would be able to lift him in the deckchair up into the air. Danny’s balloon deckchair experiment will have not only a profound effect on him, but that of Glenda Lake of Clarence, she a lonely parking enforcement police officer who has felt lost in life, while Trudy also sees it as another possible restart to her and Danny’s relationship in that proverbial fifteen minutes of fame in their lives.
Plot: Based on a true story, the tale of a cement truck driver named Danny, whose long awaited vacation is cancelled thanks to his scheming girlfriend, Trudy. Danny escapes his grim life in suburban Australia and blasts into the skies in a chair tied with helium balloons. A mighty thunderstorm blows him clean off the map, and spits him out far away over the lush green town of Clarence. In this new town, he rockets into the world of Glenda, the town’s only parking cop. While the media back home becomes obsessed with the story of his disappearance, Danny gets to reinvent himself in this new town, and in his great adventure, he discovers a true soul mate in Glenda. Fate catches up with him eventually, as Danny’s true identity is revealed and Trudy–now a tabloid celebrity–comes to the idyllic town to claim Danny and drag him back to Sydney. Danny, however, is a changed man; he’s discovered what it means to be happy and has found a new self-worth.

Lotsa heart
“Danny Deckchair” tells of the adventures of a young concrete truck driver who decides to tie a bunch of helium filled balloons to his deck chair to soar aloft. His plan is to take shears with him to cut away one balloon at a time thereby making his descent. Instead, he leaves the shears behind and the balloons carry him to a new life and a new love. This sweet, cute, fun little flick from down-under is a fresh and creative new addition to the much over worked romcom genre. With lots of heart and unpredictable predictability, “Danny Deckchair” should be an enjoyable watch for those who don’t mind a little schmaltz with their romantic comedy fare. (B)

A family film that can actually entertain the whole family!
Danny Deckchair is a rare beast in today’s ultra-conservative film industry where a tired formula must be stuck to lest the audience not cough up hundreds of millions of dollars. It is a film that goes without the showerings of blood, constant four-letter words, or special effects that could turn a Pentium IV into a puddle of liquid. Instead, it relies on the story and the characters therein to keep the viewer interested, and that is where it succeeds.

At its heart, it is simply a story about a man who is living in a virtual cage, a prison with no walls to quote the song. So one fine weekend after he is basically told by all concerned that he will have nothing and never be anything, he accidentally launches himself into the air on a fold-up garden chair with dozens of large helium balloons tied to it. This part actually happened, believe it or not.

When Danny lands in a country town several hours North of the home he was sick of in Sydney, he is instantly a local celebrity. He takes up with a local parking cop, and together, the two of them explore things in life that would make them significantly happier than they are now. Meanwhile, back in Sydney, the other prisoners are trying to determine what happened to the escapee when a local policeman in the Northern town, jealous of how happy these two are, decides to let said Sydney prisoners know where their man is.

As I said earlier, the film relies very heavily upon the performances of the actors to stay afloat. Rhys Ifans, best known as one of the emaciated, lunatic twins of Twin Town, makes it incredibly easy to sympathise with his character, the titular Danny Deckchair. There is not a moment in the film when I question whether I would do what he does. Miranda Otto, now infamous as Éowyn, the only woman who actually goes into battle during the Lord Of The Rings saga (at least the way Tolkien wrote it), is equally convincing as the parking cop whose life is forever changed by a man falling out of the sky and into her front yard. It’s a good thing the whole show rests on the shoulders of these two actors, because they could not have been better chosen.

The support cast don’t exactly make any waves, but they do give an excellent framework regarding the story. This is particularly clear at the end when Danny finds himself back in Sydney and, disgusted with the way of life there, decides he is far better off in a town where everyone seems to know his name, and not just because it has been broadcast to death on the news. Without the supporting characters who represent Danny’s former workmates and significant others, the story would probably fall flat.

All in all, I gave the film a nine out of ten. It does have a few moments when the pace slows too far for its own good, but this is one of the best films to come out of Australia since The Pirate Movie. If you get the chance, watch it with as many friends and relatives as possible.
