Nice Aussie import, less roaring

Another Oz pic set in the roaring twenties, when things were.... well roaring. Undercover has enough glamour, humor, and fine performances, and is an enthusiastic effort, but doesn't fully rise to other similar pics, which are more mainstream. It is a cute little film, with many cuties, and a lasting impression/performance by Picot (she played the bitter carer in Proof) as an aspiring, costume designer, where American import, Pare was wonderful as a womanizing, bigoted, narcissistic co manager, we don't realize how capable an actor this guy is, and to escape acting recognition here, is downright criminal. John Walton is solid too, and gives the film flavor. Phelps is good too, as the local stud, cracking onto anything with lace, stiletto's, cotton, and a woman attached. Not so memorable, but fun. The performances make the film, especially Pare's.
