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 (22) | Top Critics (4)

  • 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.

  • The trouble starts when things get half-serious. The half bit is the problem.

    Jan 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.

    Dec 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.

    Dec 12, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | 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.

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