Very Entertaining and Wildly Original
10 December 2003 | by (The Greater Southwest) – See all my reviews

This film is hard to describe. It starts in New York City and then finds itself in the Australian Outback. This guy who sells illegal exotic birds is on the run. He heads to Australia to hide and get more birds. He is then lured by a vixen into a community of Aussie dog-food makers that live alone in the outback. They watch old musicals and are as dirty as garbage. Oh yeah, nobody is allowed to leave the community, known as Woop Woop. To be honest, this is one of the freshest and most enjoyable movies I can ever remember seeing. Loved it! And yes, that is Rod Taylor!! *** out of ****.
