A cracker, a piss-take
12 December 2002 | by (Melbourne) – See all my reviews

I'm just a sucker for this type of Australian comedy romp. ELISA FRASER follows somewhat in the path established by ALVIN PURPLE, THE GREAT MACARTHY and later PACIFIC BANANA, this time transporting the story to early colonial times.

A priggish and portentous sea captain played humorously by Noel Ferrier and his young wife - Susannah York - are shipwrecked on an island with their crew. They are later captured by Aborigines while their mutinous crew deteriorate into savages. One convict and Military officer on the nearby penal settlement both vie for the Captain's wife's attentions. The plot moves on comedically at a Swiftan pace and is quite enjoyable.

This movie is also an all-star cast of Australian actors and every player - admittingly given the script's content - churns out a great performance.
