An enjoyable movie all about interesting characters and crazy combinations. The story is very character based and relies on the characters and their oddities to create the plot. If you enjoy easy going Australian comedy based on solid characters and how they inform the plot then this romp back to the late 60s is for you.
It is still a great movie( I saw it way back)
What a shame it did not have subtitles, the music was so loud we could not hear the conversations. It had great dialogue which is missing in so many movies these days.
A bit outdated but still a lot of fun. I thought the play last year (2007) was better.
I think I enjoyed this more now than in the 70s as it brought a touch of historical reflection. Raunchy, boozy, sexist and very 70s. It must have been outrageous then. I enjoyed looking at some of our Australian actors in their early days.
Even 'tho it's an oldie, it's an enjoyable Aussie classic.
Forget picnic at hanging rock or the others, this is the true rebirth of aussie cinema. Brilliant writing, characterisations, acting. i know that I have met each and every one of theSE characters in my previous inner Sydney life. And the thing is so damnded funny!!!
Almost a documentary of this era!
I recalled many parties my parents attended in the 70's, with the kids in the Play Room and the parents in the velour patterned wallpapered living room..
In response to the review stating "...daring nudity for the 70's", this decade was full of nudity on TV and films. This was the Age of Aquarius and of so called enlightenment!
Lest we forget Alvin Purple, The Box, Number 96, even the Benny Hill Show to an extent.
Working our way through the Graham Kennedy movies, others such as The Club and Travelling North are better, but still worth having a look at Aussies in the 70s.
Aussie parties have stayed the same over the years - good fun to watch. Pity the sound quality in the '70s isn't as good as it is these days.
This might be old and in black & white, but it still has major impact. The clothes have changed and the actors are now much older, but the situation is still relevant and funny.
Gets underneath the true characters of a group of suburban types attending a party.
This is quite an eye-opener and quite challinging at times when thinking back on your own party experiences.
Pretty daring nud ity for the 70's
Graham Kennedys plays the pathetic per ve sooo well and the duck hunter is still hillarous.
Memorable old flick which exposes the double standards of the 1970s male.
Great swimming pool scenes.
