Movie Reviews

Diversificating Nation
Michael Kerjman | 10/04/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Early Dame Edna takes her UK-born Australian nephew back to England to merry on a local girl of whose mother arranged this trip on her expense.

Showing the England of the seventies as seen by an Australian-bread lad and lad's behavioral features as seen by local Pomes distinguishes traditionally between Australia and mother country of England by usual made-in-Australia way.

Perhaps, Crocodile Dundee in the States ( see, for instance, The Crocodile Dundee Triple Feature )is the further much better developments of this topic on one nation's diversification upon a passage of time occurred.
For Aussies only

"I love Barry Humphries and I think that Dame Edna is a hoot. But as an American, I found this difficult to get through. First of all, Edna is here in a very early incarnation - before she became the celebrity skewering talk show host. Second: the humor here is provincial. You have to be from down under to appreciate the Aussies vs. the Brits insult humor. I just didn't get it. But then, the Brits don't get Seinfeld.
The accent will throw you off if you haven't watched a lot of Australian films (or what few films there are out there). I found it incomprehensible at times.
Low budget, slow moving, sophomoric to my taste, this was a HUGE hit in Australia. Everyone else may wonder what the fuss was about."
