Editorial Reviews

Wendy (Rosanna Arquette) is a bored timid housewife in a seemingly fizzled marriage. She longs for the adventure and more importantly the sensuality she finds within the pages of her romance novels. But it becomes evident owing to a series of ironies accidents and misadventures that eventually causes Wendy and her lovable doofus husband Ronnie (Bruce Spence of the Mad Max movies) to see what went wrong and to remember what attracted them to each other in the first place.System Requirements:Running Time: 90 minutesFormat: DVD MOVIE Genre: COMEDY/ROMANTIC COMEDY UPC: 879431000244 Manufacturer No: MAC24

It's Almost totally stupid that three or four times (at approximately five minute intervals) the picture freezes and switches to a blue screen with white print reading "FOR SCREENING PURPOSES ONLY". Did VCI think we were going to ingest the DVD, or what?

The movie is Almost completely out of focus throughout. Your typical extended play VHS has better picture quality.

It's Almost completely implausible that a man would leave Rosanna Arquette without telling her where he's going or what he's doing for whatever time it takes to rebuild and refurbish a broken down derelict of a restaurant.

The Good: The film is a very quirky Australian piece with a very young Hugo Weaving. Loved seeing him and Bruce Spence! If you don't ask too many questions regarding the logic of the story, it is a fun little fantasy.

The Bad: The quality of the DVD was terrible. Grainy and washed out picture and, as mentioned before, the "Screening Copy" warning coming up constantly in the first part of the film.

Apparently the 2005 dvd release is poor as well. This 2008 one looks like a transfer from an extended play vhs. Indeed, I have transfered things from extended play vhs that I recorded from tv that looks better. There is also a notice that comes up a couple times "this is a screening copy". We need a better release of this movie.

Popular romance novels, in addition to American Westerns and private eye tales, are common fodder for millions of undemanding readers who are never strained by their favourites as they can simply open a book to any page and immediately be upon familiar territory. Each of these genres is suitable for effective cinematic pastiche, and successful comedic examples of films in these classifications are not difficult to locate, but this Australian effort is certainly not one. Wendie Walters (Rosanna Arquette) occupies a great deal of her time by reading romance novels, the origin of her fascination with this froth not surprisingly being an uninteresting marriage, in her case one of ten years to Ronnie (Bruce Spence), a route salesman for a cut-rate confectionery. Her dreary existence is normally only enlivened by phantasies born of her reading, but since her tenth wedding anniversary is only a day away, she has planned something more realistic, a lavish meal for her and Ronnie to be held in their small flat, a candlelit feast that she worries may be more meaningful to her than to her spouse. Indeed, apparently this is the fact, for Ronnie does not show up for the dinner, does not even come home at all, although a viewer knows the reason as we watch him driving through the Outback, following his sales route and suffering through a spate of vehicular mishaps that include overheating, a tire puncture, and a lightning strike that deposits a large tree limb in the path of his delivery van, thereby stranding him in Lizard Gully, population 2 (a crafty woman with her grown, and quite dim, son).Read more ›

Format: DVD
This movie is just great and nostalgic for some of us....Arquettes and Weavings performances are just great in this sweet romantic comedy that won't be easily forgotten ....Anyways...I won't bother myself with writing too much details because in the end I absolutely won't recommend it for the sake of a pervert "Inc" called "Direct Source"...I mean the movie is totally remarkable ...but the quality is just way too unbearable...I just don't undestand how did those people found the guts to distribute some cult classic with a bad repulsive quality that kept me trying to determine the characters faces I mean the image is way too blurred... oh and the audio..it just keeps going and coming like a gentle visitor...this is just too depressing ...I guess that the price speaks for itself.....Please amazon ...clean your stock from this garbage.
