I owe my career to The Castle
No-one could have really predicted the sleeper hit of 1997 would become so big, but Curry said if anything it had grown more beloved over time.
"It is 21 years since we shot the film and I owe pretty much every part of my career since then to working on it,"he said.
"It is one of those films that resonates today as much, if not more, than it did when it came out."
The secret, he said, is the family love at the centre of the story.
"What I've been thinking about this film too, it is one of the very few, in fact the only successful comedy I can think of about a family that is about functionality.
"It's about how much a family love each other and they don't get the comedy out of dysfunctionality or how they detest each other, which is most comedies."
Elephant's trunk is up which means good luck
Classic scene in the Australian movie "The Castle"where one of the sons, Dale Kerrigan (played by Stephen Curry) explains to his brother in prison, Wayne (played by Wayne Hope) that the present brings good luck because the elephant's trunk is up.
