Dry Comedy
26 January 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The trailer at some film in about 85-86 led me to watching this,and i hate to say this this but the trailer was much better than the film. It takes you along the final weeks of William Wills & Robert Burke and the crossing of outback Australia that was never completed by europeans before. I got very confused and was lost after about 30 minutes,but Gary Mcdonald is one of my favorite Australian comedians and with the help of Kym Gyngell it keeps the film just going . On a final note, who ever did the Trailer to this deserves an award.IT IS BLOODY GOOD and one of the best i have seen.The IMDB should try to get it.
