Liked the movie very much.
25 November 2002 | by tlfeetSee all my reviews

It is good fun and its quirkiness is endearing. Some of the comedy is hilarious. While some of the jokes are inside Aussie stuff, it should appeal to a wider audience.

I saw it 30 years ago and it is still stuck in my brain.
