Now Nick Giannopoulos and Vince Colosimo are picking up where they left off with Wog Boy 2: The Kings of Mykonos. Directed by Peter Andrikidis, Steve and Frank (Giannopoulos and Colosimo) are 10 years older, but sadly not much wiser. When Steve learns that his long lost uncle has died, leaving him as a potential heir to a multimillion dollar beach in Mykonos, Greece, he thinks his luck is all about to change. Along with his best friend, Frank, the lads travel to the old country to claim what they think will be easy money. Starting out as a dream come true, the boys come to realise that having a Greek heritage doesn't necessarily mean you're one of the locals. There are problems to be overcome along the way ranging from 'Greekonomics' to a millionaire property developer trying to con Steve out of his inheritance and a family he never knew he had. Steve must somehow win over Mykonos and save the beach before it's too late. I didn't find the sequel as funny as the original instalment of The Wog Boy. There were a few good moments, but the jokes seemed passed on by with a feeling that there should have been more laughs. The best part of the movie was the flippedaround culture clash, with Steve finding his Australian background alienating him from the locals and the Greek way of life. Although it might not be all that full-on in the joke department, Giannopoulos is still one of those blokes you just can't help but like. He makes the movie entertaining, light hearted and easy to watch. Colosimo also added his own personal touch with a story within a story as Nick tries to prove he still has his mojo. Mykonos looks beautiful on screen, bringing a fresh setting for these familiar characters. With a bit of romance on the side, Wog Boy 2: The Kings of Mykonos won't blow your socks off, but is definitely a nice way to spend an afternoon.

The annual local film competition has a free showing of the 63 entries on an outdoor screen until Sunday, including the award ceremony on Saturday night. A festival highlight will be Sunday's launch of Salvatore Finocchiaro's 90 Second Champion at 7.30pm, telling the story of Humpty Doo boxer John Siriotis. Siriotis celebrated winning the 1987 Australasian junior middleweight title in Marrara and the judges overturned the decision a minute and a half later. Another biographical treat is Was Born Blind Naina Sen's look at the life of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu, on Saturday evening. Other local musos taking to the screen include Ali Mills, singing her Kriol version of Waltzing Matilda, and videos from Sex in the Desert, Semishigure, Kris Keogh, Mark Hilton and Megan Spencer. Festival producer Dixi Joy Bankier said there is something for everyone in the festival. "There's some funny ones in there, some moving dramas, short films, music videos," she said. "It's a mix of non-budget and professionally made films, there are some standouts, the youngest film maker is eight. "We like to give amateur filmmakers the opportunity to see their films on the big screen because it really helps them to be seen by an audience, to be able to compare them, improve themselves, get audience feedback and reaction." Screenings are free of charge from 7.30pm, showing until 10pm on Saturday and Sunday. A networking event for current and wannabe film industry people will be in Browns Mart courtyard from 4.30pm on Thursday and Friday.

The documentary is screened on Sunday evening Tony Blass and Laura Van Beuzekom practicing for the 2008 Lip Sync World Championships in Darwin PURSE your lips, close your eyes and sing your heart out, but dont make a sound at tomorrows Lip Sync World Championship qualifier. At the first heat in the Beachfront Hotel you will probably see Whitney, Britney and Axl all paying lip service to get into the World Championship on June 18. Beachfront promotions manager Guy Dunne said a few acts were working on their moves already. "We've a few acts interested, a few duos, bands and solo performances," he said. "A group of girls are dressing up as the Spice Girls, there's even been a mention of Susan Boyle turning up." Lip Sync World Championship coordinator Luke Lombard said Darwin was an obvious choice of venue for the world championship. "There's a lot of characters in Darwin which makes it so good," he said. "It's mainly there because of the dry season and it's got the right demographics there's a lot of international people cruising through town. "It's a world exclusive for Darwin, we're hoping it's going to be a big one." The first World Champion was Darwin's Daniel 'Marzi Panne' Cunningham in 2008. The fun starts at 9.30pm each night, the second qualifier is on June 10. Synching feeling Operatunity to see a song and dance By CONOR BYRNE OPERA is not a traditional Territory music staple, but Tosca is coming to SkyCity on Sunday to give us a taste of how the fat lady sings. The same gang was here last year with La Triviata, and director/narrator Hugh Halliday said they are looking forward to the return. "La Triviata went down very well, we had a big crowd and they loved it," he said. "Tosca is good old opera; one murder, two suicides, an attempted rape, all the stuff of opera, good dramatic stuff." The 100-year-old story, written by Giacomo Puccini, is about 1800 Roman opera singer Tosca, trying to save political rebel lover Mario from the hands of corrupt police chief Baron Scarpia. Mario is stopped, and Scarpia dupes Tosca into a plot to save him from the firing squad, and the rest is what you pay to find out. Halliday said the opera is interesting because it contains truths of 1800 Rome. "There are some areas of fact in the story, it takes place in real places," he said. "At the time of the opera it was thought that the Austrian troops and the Prince of Rome had beaten Napoleon at the battle of Marengo, but they got the news wrong and Napoleon had beaten them this plays a part in the plot." The cast of eight includes three-time Wagner winner Merav Barnea as Tosca. The dramatics starts at 6pm, admission is $12.50, under-14s go free. Hugh Halliday narrates Tosca at SkyCity on Sunday
