Storyline

Australia, 1975. The beach suburb of Nobbys Beach is a place that revolves around surf mats, baby oil, boxed wine and the new miracle of Kentucky Fried Chicken. 14 year-old Jeff tries to find his feet in a world changing faster than his hormones, and deal with his crush on shy and sensitive girl-next-door Melly. When the beach town suddenly hits the spotlight after the body of a 200-ton whale is washed ashore, Jeff and Melly think it's the biggest thing that ever happened in their lives. Meanwhile, their eccentric parents are catching up with the sexual revolution that has also washed up on Australia's beaches. And just like the decaying whale, it's all about to go spectacularly wrong.

Daft as a brush, uplifting and occasionally laugh out loud funny
21 May 2018 | by boydwaltersSee all my reviews

Having just seen Deadpool 2, which is such a letdown after the first one, I cannot understand how this is getting such bad reviews ... Its bright, colourful and laugh out loud funny ... If you grew up in a seaside community in the 70s its a must ... If you like 70s Australian cinema its a must ... If you like camp, daft as a brush comedies its a must ... Its not trying to be a masterpiece ... Its just a funny, but sharp, pastiche of cliched 70s Australia ... And gord did those cliches really exist ... Give it a go ... It made me laugh out loud ... A lot :)))
