Movie Info

1970s Australia: A 200-ton blue whale washes up on a local beach and the kids think it's the biggest thing that's ever happened in their lives. Behind closed doors, the Mums and Dads of this quiet suburban cul-de-sac celebrate in their own special way, by joining the sexual revolution. It's a time of boxed wine, bad hair, bad styles, bad choices, but good times. And like the rotting whale, it's all about to go spectacularly wrong.


Critic Reviews for Swinging Safari

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (3)

Elliott whizzes from montage to sight gag to flashbacks and flash-forwards, skittering sideways for frequent discursions about the family pets, or a disastrous incident with a beach umbrella.

As he did so winningly in "Priscilla" and 1997's unfairly overlooked outback comedy "Welcome to Woop Woop," Elliott celebrates Australian identity with genuine love while simultaneously roasting it over the coals of no-holds-barred satire and parody.

Is this outrageous comedy sexy or revolting? Elliott proves - though this feels like the least of his achievements - that a film can be both.

If you need a way to laugh at all the reasons you're deficient, or to examine why your white Australian friends are the hot messes they are, grab your sluggers, lather up that body in oil, spark up a dart and laugh. And, hopefully, don't cry.

...a nostalgic comedy.

Unfortunately, once the need to tell a tall story about partner-swapping parents and their hilariously unsupervised offspring kicks in, the movie is soon cut down to size.

Audience Reviews for Swinging Safari

So disappointed. I have been looking forward to seeing this for ages and now I have, wish I never bothered. What a waste of a good cast and setting. Loud screaming kids non stop, stuff about animals I don't like seeing and virtually no plot. What the is doesn't make sense.
