A shameful bit of tripe.
8 July 2001 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Back of Beyond (B of B) is one of the most profoundly terrible films I have ever seen.

From the flat performances and boring characters to the plot that is completely predictable from the first scene, B of B has nothing to engage or entertain the viewer.

The tedium that is B of B can best be summed up by what happened during the screening I attended. An individual in the row behind me not only received three mobile phone calls, but made two more. No one. I mean no one complained, I think because his banal conversations were more interesting than the events onscreen.

This film reinforces my opinion that Australia makes the worst English-language films in the world. Trust me. I'm Australian, and I've seen the tripe we make. Unfortunately the rare gems of Australian cinema (The Boys, Mad Max, Muriel's Wedding etc) are swamped by the dross that is B of B.
