In the end the film was entitled "Welcom to Woop Woop" and was not titled the name of the film's source novel, "The Dead Heart" (1995), another Australian film had used this title the year before [See: Dead Heart (1996)], nor was it titled by the picture's working title, which was "The Big Red", a title which has been used as a film title at least a couple of times since [See: The Big Red (2005) and The Big Red (2013)]. The 2005 film was an Australian production whilst the 2013 film was a UK production. Ironically, Welcome to Woop Woop (1997) was a UK-Australia co-production. See more »
This film is hard to describe. It starts in New York City and then finds itself in the Australian Outback. This guy who sells illegal exotic birds is on the run. He heads to Australia to hide and get more birds. He is then lured by a vixen into a community of Aussie dog-food makers that live alone in the outback. They watch old musicals and are as dirty as garbage. Oh yeah, nobody is allowed to leave the community, known as Woop Woop. To be honest, this is one of the freshest and most enjoyable movies I can ever remember seeing. Loved it! And yes, that is Rod Taylor!! *** out of ****.
