Title: “BoyTown”

Director: Mick Molloy

Sales company: _____

An awful lot of comedies have been released in Oz the last few years, and the only one that did any business was “Crackerjack” from star-scribe Mick Molloy. Now there are no laffers in production except for Molloy’s follow-up, “BoyTown,” about a glam boy band intent on re-experiencing the excitement of performing together. Molloy has surrounded himself with the creme de la creme of Oz comedians, including “Kath and Kim” co-star Glenn Robbins.
