Emily rides her bicycle everywhere but does not wear a bicycle helmet. Australian states had all introduced legislation requiring bicycle riders to wear helmets by 1992. As this film appears to be set after then, Emily should be wearing one. It is most noticeable as a goof when Carl Roberts (the police officer) sees her riding without a helmet and does nothing about it. See more »
I'm over in Sydney on business and I popped in to see what was on in the local cinema. All the films that were on i'd seen, and the only thing I hadn't was Caterpillar Wish. I kinda groaned a little when I realised it was an Oz picture, I went in almost expecting a not great film. A "We have to show something home grown because the government says so" type film. BUT I was amazingly surprised! It was so much better than I expected. Oz really does have talent! The actors were pretty good, the only thing I felt that let it down a little was the cinematography. Things could have been a little tighter, I think the crash sequence (without giving anything away) could have been done more effectively, in my eyes it just didn't work.
Good fun! go see! :)
