Storyline

Further adventures of the Number 96 (1972) crew, on the big screen. After a devastating experience at the hands of a group of bikies Vera Collins recovers at the home of socialite friend Claire Houghton where she meets distinguished politician Nicholas Brent. She is romanced by him and worries that her shady past may harm his career but abruptly calls off the affair after a shock meeting with his son Tony. Dorrie and Herb begin arrangements for the celebration of their Ruby wedding anniversary with Roma, Arnold, Norma and Dudley all crossing wires and duplicating tasks while attempting to help out and cut costs. However a shocking discovery by Flo threatens to halt the celebrations and brings a new man into Dorrie's life. Meanwhile Aldo struggles to work two jobs after accidentally losing the money he had secretly pocketed in the deli to avoid paying income tax on it, and Lucy is suitably unimpressed after Les ropes Alf into his latest money-spinner; a sauna in the building's basement...

A must see film
22 March 1999 | by TeddlesSee all my reviews

Number 96 is without doubt the most pathetic film ever made in Australia. It is so pathetic that it is brilliant. Although the film makers did not intend to do it, they have created a messterpiece ? (masterpiece).
