One of the best Australian comedy films ever. It's not just funny, it appeals to the heart as well;and not in a soppy way. The family setting is great as is the rural North Queensland atmosphere. Starring Toni Pearen ( Funniest Home Videos), David Price (tv stuff) and John Jarratt (Australia, Blue Heelers, Wolf Creek among others) the story has a pace to it that keeps building and changing in unexpected directions. It is a sister piece to that Australian hit Priscilla Queen of the Desert as it also involves a cross-dressing theme in rural Australia, but for my money the plot here is far more interesting and developed. It has the sleeper quality of Crackers and is far more entertaining than a lot of those pretentious Australian movies like Little Fish, Candy and Somersault. Get a look at it!
