G'Day Mate! Welcome to the Land Down Under!
1 April 2008 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

This movie has a little more thrill than the first one. Atfer the first trip to Paris 5 years ago, the gang: Blair(Lisa Whelchel), Tootie(Kim Fields), Natalie(Mindy Cohn), and Jo(Nancy McKeown). This time, the go to the Land Down Under:(Australia) where there's an International problem going on there. A jewel heist, and a Communist plot are in the ploy. Blair and Jo get caught up in the heist, Natalie get lost in the Outback where she is found by an outdoors-man. It was funny when the camel licked her feet while she was asleep. And Tootie meets this fake Aborigine who turned out to be a Yale student. It was also great when Natalie foiled the plan with a boomerang. The only difference in this movie is actress Cloris Leachman playing Edna's sister Beverly Ann. She has a old love that was living there, and she wanted to reminisce the old times with the guy. A very good movie, very different though, I didn't care about what was original and what wasn't, I knew about Charlotte Rae's departure from the show earlier. This movie doesn't hurt anything. It had plenty of action. 4 out of 5 stars!
