I think being an Australian would be a lot harder if it weren't for people like Ruth Cracknell. & it is interesting how much of her iconic work dealt with people who aren't spoken of much in polite society - the old. (see *Mother and Son*) This movie is another charming example, & it makes me crack up each time I see it. Sure, the 'street lingo' is out of date and the references to other bits of nineties culture won't stick to people who weren't there, but that is no reason for it to be kept out of the way like so many other Australian films. Because it IS very funny, and strange enough for some, the young still relate to the old these days.
