Cult Classic from Down Under
10 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nancy Nancy is a cult classic. I was fortunate enough to see at a screening in New York recently when a friend forced me to come after seeing the trailer. The plot of the film revolves around a cracked gender bender called Nancy Nancy, who commits a home invasion in an Australian coastal town and keeps a nerdy couple hostage. This film is on the cutting edge of outrageous humor and satire, the delivery of sharp well written dialog is exemplary. A Tour De Force performance from Tim Burns in the title role, who not only repulses you, but possess' the power to have you in hysterical laughter one minute and in tears of sorrow the next. Burns seems almost possessed in the character, and you begin to forget that he is actually a male. Nancy Nancy has no scruples, is sexually promiscuous, foul mouthed, completely acts on impulse, but is also sad and vulnerable and world weary. You cannot help but begin to fall in love with her as the story progresses. The darkly comic and almost claustrophobic nature of the film both tastefully and tastelessly investigates the sense of belonging and acceptance, lonesomeness, motherhood and the family unit. Director Timothy Spanos has meshed together a hilarious romp that operates on many levels. There are so many classic lines in the film that not only resonate and stings, I wish I could remember them. Many I missed because the audience were laughing so loudly and hardly. The songs written by the director and co star Matt Thomas are catchy. The interaction between Nancy Nancy and her captives in the final scene alone are worth the purchase of a DVD.
