Storyline

Further adventures of the Number 96 (1972) crew, on the big screen. After a devastating experience at the hands of a group of bikies Vera Collins recovers at the home of socialite friend Claire Houghton where she meets distinguished politician Nicholas Brent. She is romanced by him and worries that her shady past may harm his career but abruptly calls off the affair after a shock meeting with his son Tony. Dorrie and Herb begin arrangements for the celebration of their Ruby wedding anniversary with Roma, Arnold, Norma and Dudley all crossing wires and duplicating tasks while attempting to help out and cut costs. However a shocking discovery by Flo threatens to halt the celebrations and brings a new man into Dorrie's life. Meanwhile Aldo struggles to work two jobs after accidentally losing the money he had secretly pocketed in the deli to avoid paying income tax on it, and Lucy is suitably unimpressed after Les ropes Alf into his latest money-spinner; a sauna in the building's basement...

Number 96 is a wonderful Australian comedy movie
6 March 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Number 96 encapsulates the best of the 1970s TV series of the same name which has been a major influence on more recent comedy shows like Kath & Kim. Number 96 also captures the flavour of the 1970s in Australia which was a transitional time from the values of the 195os represented by Dorry Evans to the coming of age of the baby boomers most strongly portrayed by Don Finlayson. The different values are not, however, placed in conflict, but are presented as a continuum comically sharing the same world.

As the movie is about the lives of the occupants of a block of flats in Paddington, the film is fast paced and holds your attention as you jump from a snippet of the life of one character to another which are all finally connected through various events at the flats. Apparently some viewers became so engrossed in the TV series that the makers received requests from viewers for a a flat at Number 96.
