A Good Laugh - Aussie Style
canadagus | Whitby, Ontario Canada | 08/12/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is a typical Aussie sleeper. It starts out slow, with laffs at the expenes of the local police, and then moves out of town and North to ??????? All the characters are excellently cast in their roles and provide continuity in the trek North for gold and adventure. If you enjoyed the first "Crocodile Dundee" you will definitely enjoy this."
One of our all-time favorite Aussie flicks
N. Horner | Vicksburg, MS United States | 05/18/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Pete is a wayward soul, a brilliant mechanical inventor, and likely to get thrown in jail for trying to avenge his mother's injury (caused by the local police chief). Rikky is a stable and accomplished geologist as well as a singer who plays guitar and sings at a local bar. To save her brother, she gets a job in the Outback and drags Pete away from Melbourne to safety. What they find is a wild set of characters, a mine that could very well make them a great deal of money and more trouble. Can the love of his sister and new girlfriend Flossie save Pete?

Rikky and Pete is raucous fun and just an all-around good story. We watch it regularly and it's always good for lots of laughs. There are a couple of scenes with nudity and a little language, but nothing I'd keep my 17-year-old from viewing."
Funny and touching

"Parts of this movie had me laughing myself off the couch. It is an understated and unpretentious film, basically a love story or a coming of age story - I guess a mixture of both.I had to give it 5 stars, it is not a 5 star movie even though Tetchie Agbayani looked totally delicious, but I figured the other reviewer gave it 4 stars, now it averges out at 4 1/2 - just about right.Well worth seeing. It is part of my library and I bring it out as a special treat for company that I know can appreciate it."
