This coming of age story is flat out hilarious. It works the 70's suburban setting hard. The Austrailian suburban experience was apparently remarkably similar to the Californian experience in that decade. The only real difference is the Austrailian accents and vernacular, which makes this even funnier. Elliot makes the most of every opportunity to go too far in every scene. If you want a lesson in how to raise your kids in the most un-PC way possible, this is the movie for you.
Despite my name, I grew up in Sydney in the seventies, I'm Anglo-Saxon and no mistaking this movie was a ripper for me for nostalgic reasons. I mean every few seconds I was being bombarded with images and sounds which tore my heart out, reminding me and even titillated my other senses from some of my most sacred memories. Surprising how clunky some of it was when almost as much was so pure I felt like someone was watching over my shoulder as a kid after all. I suspect this will not reverberate with other Western audiences as much because what it depicts above all is a unique Australian experience which I know has not permeated the rest of the far-flung European Empire. This is much more appealing to me as a non-LGBTQ bloke than Priscilla. By the way the amount of re-writing I had to do to get this review past the automatic LGBTQ defending censorship was enough to make me even more hostile to these lifestyle CHOICES. Cue nasty angry face! Aussies will continue to call F..s for fa.s as we did even when the issue was finished in the seventies. Back then f... were not such thin-skinned wombats!
This is an incoherent mishmash of aggressive characters, ambiguous violence, a dull, unstructured plot and over the top direction. The overuse of iconic props isn't enough distraction to hide the flaws. Another embarrassing Australian flop that's an insult to the intelligence the Australian film industry, its talented actors and Australia as a whole!
Saw the beginning. Looks like absolute shit. And yes, I grew up in Australia in the 70s.
A narrative boring home movie. If you like the preview you'll probably like the movie.
Really nice movie (;
Fantastic movie! best sountrack and of course Kylie Minogue one of the best roles
Saw it during the 2018 Chicago Film Festival as "Flammable Children." Lots of horrible people and dysfunctional families, lots of plot discontinuity, but good for a few laughs.
