Cute and deliciously off-kilter.

The quirkiest musical I've ever seen, and despite its flaws I enjoyed it.

It's a Bran Nue Dae for Australian comedy. Enjoyable and satirical; a pleasant surprise.

Bran Nue Dae is so spectacularly cheerful and effervescent it has successfully wrestled my practical criticisms and deemed them irrelevant.

Out of left field and Down Under comes Rachel Perkins' musical to surprise viewers, as if a stranger burst into a well-orchestrated song in conversation.

Comes off as "Moulin Rouge" at half speed, which is more of a compliment than you might imagine.

The film is uneven but in a kind of sweet, earnest way.

You have to wonder about the film's almost complete portrayal of Aborigines as dim-witted dunderers, dancing fools, thieves and drunks. Whites fare no better. Does the film explode stereotypes, or reinforce them?

Instead of being a fount of melody, this film is more of a song desert with exactly one memorable song...

The bright colors and vibrant backgrounds ... go a long way in distracting from shortcomings in the story and style of this offhand hybrid.

Reportedly a popular musical in Australia, though it's difficult to imagine why, Bran Nue Dae is a film adaptation that barely qualifies as either a film or a musical.

Bran Nue Dae is an infectiously joyful Australian Aboriginal musical.

It's not everyday you see an 'all-talking, all-singing, all-dancing'Aboriginal musical that also boasts Geoffrey Rush as a scenery-chewing priest with a dodgy German accent.

Bran Nue Dae is a kooky, deliriously happy mix of happenstance and broadly-drawn characters who are apt to break into song at any given moment. It's not quite enough for me to recommend, but I'm not unhappy to have seen it.

Soon, whenever someone launches into a song, you roll your eyes and hope the tune is a short one.

A difficult sit for anyone unable to tune into the film's dedication to bootleg turns of plot and characterization, with the whole endeavor starting to feel like a dental drill after the first act.

It's a bit corny and reminiscent of Baz Luhrmann or Julie Taymor's pop fantasies, but we can forgive her.

Delightful musical trip of a teenage Aborigine through 1960's Australian outback with wonderful rocking mix of song genres, let alone hippies, to feel like Hair.

Geoffrey Rush chews so much scenery that he looks ready to burst.
