Crackers is a Christmas-themed film made in Australia and released in 1998.

Not to be confused with the 1984 heist film directed by Louis Malle and starring Donald Sutherland.

This movie contains examples of:

  • Bar Brawl: Joey and Albert gets involved in one near the start of the film.
  • Buried Alive: Joey does this to himself after accidentally getting Bomber killed. He gets out shortly after.
  • Kill It with Fire: An accidental example. While Bruce was getting the barbecue ready, Joey decided to let Bomber off his leash. Bruce saw Bomber running straight at him, stumbled backwards, launched a container of petrol into the barbecue and incinerated Bomber in a mushroom cloud explosion.
  • Mood Whiplash: Several times.
    • After Joey gets frustrated with Albert, Albert starts squirting Joey with a fire extinguisher to "put out the fire". Joey retaliated by getting a water hose and initiating a water fight. Meanwhile, Jack was trimming the edge of his lawn with a whipper snipper and stepped in a loop in the hose. When Joey pulled on the hose, it caused Jack to inadvertently chop the top off one of his most precious plants. Jack was furious.
