Put your pjs on, get comfy on the couch and spend Christmas Eve watching a favourite Christmas movie – A Very Barry Christmas.
A Very Barry Christmas is a hilarious tale of misadventure spanning the earth from the white expanse of the North Pole to the red-hot desert of the Australian outback.
Meet Barry Buckley, a man with the best of intentions and the world’s worst luck! Barry runs a charity of sorts in the Australian outback – caring for an oddball assortment of unwanted domesticated animals that conveniently call his place home. There’s Nigel, a cantankerous crocodile with a fear of rejection, Lilly a former boxing kangaroo, Walter the platypus, and a narcoleptic koala named Simon. They’re an odd bunch, and they really do love Barry. He has managed to fill their bellies with food and keep a roof over their heads – until now.
When Barry’s latest sure-fire business venture fails to ignite, a bizarre chain reaction of events ends in a catastrophic meeting with Santa. Before you can say ‘Winter Wonder Down Under’ the two have unwittingly traded lives in a Christmas mix-up of epic proportions.
A modern take on a classic Christmas theme, with unique visual appeal, a feel-good story and laugh-outloud humour, A Very Barry Christmas might just become your new Christmas tradition!
