A great trip down memory lane
22 April 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Oh to see it. 1984. I was 12. Gosh has it been that long! When we had Leyland leopards, and Mark 4s were new. Brookvale Bus depot was more relaxed, and the movie was shot near the Narabeen lakes. AHH. Western Sydney was in the sticks, with very little around. A funny and corny story by today's standards, but I just love it. The family in the story, live in a very crampy caravan, when Terry forces her husband to sell everything they have and get a HUGE mortgage. The poor couple are forced to work night and day to meet the minimum payments, and when he loses his driver's license one day, everything goes wrong. They end up coming to a better agreement, and a happy ending ensues, with our family driving into the sun on their trip to their new home.

Fab 80's fashions, and house designs. The cars are to die for :)

To see Australian film quality in the past (Well the early 80's), this is the one to watch. Not available on DVD, I hope it will be, one day, but I still have my trusty VHS tape, bought for $10. Gosh!
