Disappointing. Slow moving. Didn't keep me awake.
Enjoyed the many scenic shots of Yack and surrounds, but the acting and dialogue pretty wet.
yeah, funny. You have to like it if you're born Aussie - I'm not
Enjoyed the Australaina though we had seen it ages'ago!
Very Funny Well spent couple of hours Well worth watching.
Quirky Aussie film with predictable and prolific one liners associated with a country towns reaction to 2 of their stalwarts 'same sex marriage'. Tried to identify the intended target audience for this film ... maybe 55 plus??? Although we dont (quite) fit this group it was an enjoyable enough afternoon diversion on a rainy day!
Pretty dreadful, poor acting by Hogan, but at least there's no violence.
Like the storyline and what predicaments can ensure when one starts a small lie. At the end, only when speaking the truth does one become believable. I'd prefer this one than Chuck and Larry as this was OUR movie/story before the US got it.
Absolutely loved it. Very Aussie and very funny. This is what true mates will do for each other. Should be compulsory viewing for anyone who doesn't know the meaning of true Aussie mateship. Two mates had to declare that they were gay and living together so that one could get a tax break. In spite of all the rumors that they had "come out", and in spite of the probing by a very "official" tax inspector, they stuck to their guns and in the end they publically declared their mateship for each other in a way that left nobody wondering that they were best mates. And that is all they were. It's all in how you say it, so that even the tax inspector is, at last, brought on side. Great stuff.
Great old-style Australian movie. Hogan has matured into a rich comedic actor. Great plotette and 2 hours well-spent!
a fuuny as aussie movie with two aussie icons
It was OK but I wouldn't be recommending it - the Australian humour was too predictable and somehow fell short of expectations.
This was quite good. A bit slow on the uptake at first, but when it got into it, it was funny. Loved the dance scenes and learning how to be gay. The daughter coming home was a laugh.
Ambiguous film has most of the hallmarks of a cult hit; it's not quite a "Priscilla", but it's amusing. Could be criticised for stereotyping male homosexuality, but its real target is the imagined outback community of 'blokes' and 'mates', which is juxtaposed against another imagined community of Oxford Street clubs (with the soundtrack, 'Welcome to the 21st Century'). Like Michael Caton's final speech in the film, viewers can probably take from it what they will; what is very difficult for straight viewers is to come out of the film with any prejudice toward queer people. Slightly flat at times, but an absolute hoot!
This is just a nice movie to watch when there is only Amercian rubbish on all the commercial stations.
I had a few laughs and chuckles, so I would recommend watching this good Australian movie.
light hearted & entertaining
One of the best laughs we have had for ages! Can not recommend it enough. Hoges really has aged well, and Caton is as good as ever too.
Very humourous light entertainment, enjoyed it immensely.
Absolutly Hilarious, great aussie movie that will have you peeing from laughing.
It was amusing and very Australian!
Great flick. An aussie movie up there with the likes of the "Castle". Well worth the watch.
Not as good as I thought it would be with Paul Hogan and Michael Caton.
Quite good but a bit predictable.
Disappointed = thought it would be better
Nice easy Sunday arvo movie.
Caton shows Hogan up as a shocking actor. Very funny but without Caton a flop
It's not one of the great movies but Michael Caton and Paul Hogan work well together and there are some good laughs.
Simplistic & totally predictable. Michael Caton is excellant but Paul Hogan is typically Paul - an aussie bloke pretending to be gay - but he does do it quite understated and therefore is OK.
Glynn Nicholas is the local "gay" hairdresser and he is superb - doesn't offend or infantile the part at all. Overall its just ok but then it doesn't offend or ridicule - its entertaining in a very light-hearted way
paul hogan isn't a terrific actor, but the story has a lesson to be learnt. michael caton is fabulous! as is glynn nicholas.
Takes a while to pick up, but then was pretty entertaining
Good Aussie comedy, typical Hoges. Good moral pitch for friendship.
Brinks on hilarious. Hogans acting at times is average but bearable. Yackandandah is portrayed pretty much as it excists. I know, I grew up in the area.
i found it a funny film to watch. Watch it if you hve seen the castle or Crocodile Dundee
Very lightweight movie. Not offensive
Not as good as most Aussie flicks
Dissappointing movie considering there's a few good Aussie actors in it.
Very light flick. Something to empty the head with.
Boring, slow, a sad waste of time and money.
