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.

  • In the end, what Swinging Safari lacks in the story is made up in originality and a satisfying art direction.

  • ... doesn't offer many gut-busting laughs, but Elliott's screenplay is sweetly nostalgic even when its mayhem feels forced.

    June 22, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A runaway train viewing experience that's pure '70s and frequently hilarious.

    June 20, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • The film is hilariously messy, worth seeing simply for the starry cast and some earthy emotionality gurgling underneath, although there's no angle to bring the audience into the story.

    June 17, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • There's a lesson here about the limits of permissive parenting, but it's mostly a Martin Parr-like evocation of a cartoonishly narcissistic time.

    June 10, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Shambolic rambunctious and fun.
