Best Aussie movie ever made
23 January 2000 | by (Perth, Western Australia) – See all my reviews

I've seen this 30 times! Great script, cast and photography. This is what Oz filmmaking was about -- Aussie flicks for Aussies. Our history, our culture, our actors, our funding and our own psyche. This movie personifies everything that my great country once was: Work Hard; Play Hard and She'll be Right Mate!
