Critic Reviews for Swinging Safari
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.
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.
It's vulgar and absurdly over-the-top. It's also really funny and a surprisingly refreshing summer tonic during Oscar season...
Unlike most Australian comedy films, which can barely sustain one viewing, Surfing Safari definitely holds up to a second helping, if for no other reason than to relish the period detail embedded into each frame, right down to the exploding pyjamas.
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.
