Bizarre, funny, definitely worth a watch!

This is a fun little peculiar film! A dime-store hood named Teddy (Johnathon Schaech) from NYC, flees the mob and a psychotic, gun-toting, stripper girlfriend for Austrailia; while crossing the Outback, he meets and seduced by Angie, who knocks him out, drugs him, and brings him to her Outback hometown ("Woop-Woop") of 50 strange friends and relatives.

Woop-Woop is a town filled with crazies, hippies, and grandparents (folks long forgotten by society when their asbestos mine is closed). The locals never leave: they package dog-food made from Kangaroos for a living, and entertain themselves with Rodgers & Hammerstein soundtracks, and a nightly viewings of classic Hollywood musicals.

The "King" of Woop-Woop is Angie's Dad (Rod Taylor... Yes, THAT Rod Taylor). Teddy isn't ready to settle down in Woop-Woop, and quickly begins to challenge Daddio (Rod Taylor). It's a peculiar film, full of colorful characters, full of subtle detail.

I've seen this film over and over and always find something new with each viewing. Three special bonuses: (1) a cameo by TV's Tina Louise, (2) ultra-handsome Johnathon Schaech in various stages of dress & undress (!!), and (3) an innocent film-clip and line of dialogue from the classic film, The Sound Of Music, that will never sound innocent to you again... It isn't really dirty, but when a Nun says it, I promise you'll giggle like a 4th grader!! You'll never look at Julie Andrews the same way again!

Welcome to Woop-Woop... You'll be glad you came!
