An Aussie's opinion
12 January 2001 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

BLOODY AWFUL...except for David Keith's Australian accent, which was surprisingly good. Do all Americans think Aussies look like this? We do NOT have forests of ginger chest hair. We do NOT wear crocodile tooth necklaces. We do NOT use words like "strewth" and "cobber" anymore. We do NOT carry Bowie knives around, much less shave with them. Well done to my hero David Keith for giving Strine a go, but as for the rest of them - the only temptation I had was to switch off. Not even straight-to-video quality. One out of ten.
