Little to recommend in this ponderous film
27 July 1999 | by (Darwin, Australia) – See all my reviews

The rebirth of the Australian film industry began in the early 1970's and with it a desire to make films in the "Carry On" mold. Some of the results were quite enjoyable but unfortunately some of them turned out like the "True Story of Eskimo Nell".

The movie follows two men who go on a journey in the Australian outback in search of the fabled prostitute Eskimo Nell and find themselves in a lot of not very interesting situations along the way. The pacing is very slow as the film meanders towards the predictable finale. This is not to say that the film is a complete waste of time; one of my favorite scenes of all time is in this film, when one character, in attempting to explain why Eskimo Nell was so renowned, said "Did you ever stick your d*** in a bucket of cream and churn it 'til it was butter?" The film also features a number of actors early in their career who have become mainstays of the Australian entertainment industry. However, this can't disguise the fact that viewers will find this film tough going.
