Yeah right! and all women are angels?
23 October 2001 | by uds3See all my reviews

This flick proves it, Australians carry the same torch for Elvis, hot rods and hair grease (OK-gel, to be politically correct these days)and with the same kitschy flair, as their Stateside contemporaries!

A young man tries his hand (as it were) at drag and then finds love in an all-girl band. (Undeniably, the best place to look!) This being the outcome of a nefarious scheme to re-unite his Elvis-besotted father with his sensible, piano-deprived mother. Dysfunctional family drama and sexual comings-of-age intersect in lightly comedic style.

Set in a small town with surrounding farms and lakes, the film's sub- plots and characters overlap and complicate like a mid-summer jaunt in a Shakespearean tale.

Toni Pearen as lead singer Angela is appealingly cutesy and tries her hardest with at best, a tradesman's script. No-one much had anything to work with here. Better than a cold cheeseburger-on-a-sesame-seed-bun to be certain, but with a medium coke as well, I'm not so sure!
