Trivia

At times during this movie there are voice-overs by the character Vivian Worcester-Jones, Max Gillies. These were not part of the original or revised movie script. They were written and added to the soundtrack in response to negative feedback by members of the audience who attended a preview/test screening (at the Longford cinema in South Yarra on 26 October 1978). Many said they had great difficulty understanding who was who and what was going on at several places during the movie. The spoken narrative was an attempt to deal with this issue. See more »

A pearler of a film
3 November 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A great film a little ripper Bruce Spence is at his hilarious best and really drives the film. And has a great supporting cast but the stand out of the film is the legendary Chad Morgan, the Sheik of Scrubby Creek an Australian country music legend his co starring role is hilarious worth seeing just for Chad's performance.It's just a shame this is the only film he made except for a short appearance in Newsfront.

The Whole cast does a great job with heaps of well known faces including that bloke who plays Beau in the Beaurepaires ads.A great little film about an outback wedding and the comedy that happens at the bucks party, very hard to find on video I saw it on Foxtel's movie channel.
