Trivia

Goofs

Joe Hasham did not appear naked on-set during his character's nude scenes. The camera is positioned slightly too low down during Don's post-beach shower, inadvertently revealing that he's wearing a pair of swimming trunks. They can be seen again later when he gets out of bed. See more »

The 'epilogue' is prefaced with "Oh, what the Hell let's have a Happy Ending." See more »

A must see film
22 March 1999 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

Number 96 is without doubt the most pathetic film ever made in Australia. It is so pathetic that it is brilliant. Although the film makers did not intend to do it, they have created a messterpiece ? (masterpiece).
