Velimir 'Bata' Zivojinovic,
I saw "Welcome to Woop Woop" a couple of weeks ago on HBO, on the recommendation of my American neighbour. He loved it! And he's right. I watched this film grinning from ear to ear, and if it were not for my neighbour's enjoying it so much, I'd have thought that only Australians would get the drift of this film.
"Welcome to Woop Woop" is resplendent with Australian iconography, and if you don't know the space you may have a hard time understanding the references. As an Australian, I can tell you those references are spot on! The language, being out in the bush, the actors Rod Taylor and Barry Humphries (Dame Edna) and so many others, the stereotypical Aborigine. Cockatoos, dunnies(outhouses), the VW van, the backyard tip (dump), the brand of beer (it's real), Rogers and Hammerstein films, kangaroos as Aboriginal spirits, kangaroos as dog meat (true, not good, but true), even the main character's dog ( a Blue Heeler, Australian Cattle Dog), and the reference to the beach. They have nailed this film. 10 stars!
