Critic Reviews for Swinging Safari

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (21) | Rotten (7)

  • 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…
  • It's a full-throttle 90 minutes of sensory overload on '70s interiors and heinous fashion, but there's also an undercurrent of just how hard it can be for teenagers to push away from parents and find their own identity.

    August 19, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It is an enormously mediocre film, potentially bland and without any grace that uses comedy and a very poor narrative to address issues of nostalgia, family and adolescence. [Full review in Spanish]
