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 (26) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (20) | Rotten (6)

  • 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.

    February 22, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The trouble starts when things get half-serious. The half bit is the problem.

    January 19, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    December 19, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Is this outrageous comedy sexy or revolting? Elliott proves - though this feels like the least of his achievements - that a film can be both.

    December 12, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • In the end, what Swinging Safari lacks in the story is made up in originality and a satisfying art direction.

    August 6, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • ... doesn't offer many gut-busting laughs, but Elliott's screenplay is sweetly nostalgic even when its mayhem feels forced.
