Goofs

There are a number of anachronisms in the Sydney backdrops, ostensibly set in the 1970s. The most obvious is the catamaran harbour ferry that crosses the screen, in an early night-time shot of the harbour bridge. These were not introduced until 15 years later in 1988. See more »

Everything about this movie should be put 'Down Under' poor.
9 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is not an offensively bad or even plain bad film, it just isn't very good either.

The performance from Joeol Edgerton is good enough, and Portia pulls off a good Ozzie accent but Dennis Hopper and Mel seem ridiculously badly cast and frankly (hehe) make you hate Frank Sinatra from the get go.

The plot is slower than a sloth running through molasses and nothing really happens - no tension, no real antagonist/protagonist struggle, just bumbles through what I believe is a semi-accurate take on the 74 tour of Oz by Frank.

If it's the only thing left on the shelf then it passes 2 hours, otherwise grab something else to spend your time with.
