Number 96 is a wonderful Australian comedy movie, 6 March 2007
10/10

Number 96 encapsulates the best of the 1970s TV series of the same name which has been a major influence on more recent comedy shows like Kath & Kim. Number 96 also captures the flavour of the 1970s in Australia which was a transitional time from the values of the 195os represented by Dorry Evans to the coming of age of the baby boomers most strongly portrayed by Don Finlayson. The different values are not, however, placed in conflict, but are presented as a continuum comically sharing the same world.

As the movie is about the lives of the occupants of a block of flats in Paddington, the film is fast paced and holds your attention as you jump from a snippet of the life of one character to another which are all finally connected through various events at the flats. Apparently some viewers became so engrossed in the TV series that the makers received requests from viewers for a a flat at Number 96.
