    The only good thing about this film is Dame Edna Everage aka Barry Humphries who appears in a few segments as the aunt, whos nephew goes to London to advance his cultural education and falls into a variety of scrapes, but it is racist, homophobic and badly dated, one yearns for the scenes with Barry Humphreys to appear as that is the only saving grace of this long drawn out, unfunny film

    Lewd, crude, boorish, and at times downright piss funny! Bazza's adventure in 'Pommyland' is Barry Humphries' idea of the extreme Aussie tourist. Littered with rhyming slang that couldn't even be interpreted in Dickensian London, it's one of the first true examples of the emerging 'Ozploitation' genre.

    Silly, childish, irreverent humour, playing to all the stereotypes. Not without laughs, & pretty much what you'd expect. Still watchable so probably a classic of its time & genre.

    It gets two stars for Dame Edna's (Barry Humphries in one of many roles) joke about the spaghetti to her stuck up English hosts and having the bloke who sung the original Neighbours theme tune in the lead role. Technically inept on so many levels, this (seminal?) Australian farce leaves a lot to be desired and some the jokes seems very very dated indeed. t

    I couldn't quite keep up with all of the Aussie slang at play here but it was a fun romp with a couple priceless moments.

    Barry Humpries has always had a subversive attiude and in this film he gets to go all out for humour of the lowest yet funniest order. Barry Crocker is great a Barry (based on a Private Eye Cartoon) a true blue Ocker Aussie who loves fosters and hates pommie poofs. Humpries has multiple roles but of course Dame Edna is here and on good form. Many complain about the films dirty look but lets face it Britain in the 70s was a pretty grotty place and its to the films credit that you get to see this. The film does look dated in some parts andthe comedy is not to everyones taste but with some great comedy songs you do get to laugh a lot

    The very first Aussie exploitation film. I wasn't expecting much, but it was actually funny!
