Some people will fail to see the humor in this wonderfully bizzare, eccentric movie. It's a great movie......where else can you see such spontaneously hysterical moments like someone dancing on the bar in electrified shoes? Or the funeral performed at the garbage dump with the cross of beer cans.....The dog food factory.... .....the continual passing of gas.....the list just goes on & on. It really made me laugh & laugh. I really appreciated this example of good cinema! It's definately one I'll watch again, and probably laugh even harder the next time around. It's hysterical. I loved it.

Welcome to Woop Woop is the follow up film to Priscilla Queen of the Desert by director Stephan Elliott. Although there are many similarities to the previous film in regards to the humor from an Australian persective, an American audience may not get the joke. I love this film, no other film except for Muriels Wedding deals with the problems of child abuse and alchoholism in Australian society in this way. Although the film is hysterically funny there are many disturbing undercurrents that destroy the popular and completely innacurate image many Americans have about Aussies, and this is a good thing. When I showed Welcome to Woop Woop to my American friends in New Mexico they were universally horrified by this movie. They repeatedly begged me to take it off. I refused to turn it off till the scene where Rogerson Hammerstein's (how they're referred to in Woop Woop) The Sound of Music is being watched by half the towns population and the Reverand Mother asks Julie Andrews "What is it you can't face"? Which is promptly repeated by the audience who've replaced the a in can't with a u and have removed the apostraphy. There is real Aussie swearing through out the film. One reason I appreciate this film is that I was taken to see The Sound of Music 23 times before I was 12, so I'm now an expert on child abuse in Australia. The shocking thing about this film is how acurate this it is. The director does utilise many techniques in creating an exagerated reality but there are moments of terrifying reality as well as comic surrealism. If you want to see how a good proportion of Australians still are then get this film but be ready for a really wild foul mouthed ride into the outback with show tunes by Rogers and I mean Rogerson Hammerstein.

Anyone who has read my reviews know I love the absurd. This film takes you past the absurd, rounds the corner of lunacy, and takes a left on Kangaroo Fantasy Lane. Take a young American picking up an attractive hitchhiking aussie chick. Not a bad fantasy, huh? Now, the girl takes said boy to meet her family in Woop Woop, a town in the middle of a meteor crater, in the middle of the Outback (the nasty dry part), where the citizens make their living grinding roo carcasses into dog food (Woof Woof from Woop Woop). The patriarch of the towm rules with an iron fist, using Rogers and Hammerstein musicals to molify the clearly `disturbed' inhabitants into a mass of downright lunatics. And the law? "Don't diddle yer cousins!" The weird part? "Anybody leaves, their dead!" As if the threat of Big Red the kangaroo was not enough...Not weird yet? Throw in Dog day, where all the pre-adolescents are given guns to chase dogs amid tin huts and other dwellings that are straight out of Mad Max. Mix in a Matriarch with gastronomy problems ("Oops, pahdun meee!"), and nightly town viewings of American musicals on a tattered bed sheet screen. If you are a fan of the strange yet compelling (Dead Alive, Heathers, Buckaroo Bonzai, Six String Samurai...) you will love this flick. I showed this to my friends on Movie Night, and every one of them moved to the other side of the room, and eyed me suspiciously. This is AUSTRALIAN comedy (Croc Dundee was Americanized Aussie comedy) at it's best. But I will warn you, you have to enjoy avant gard humor! Trust me. I am never wrong

Welcome to Woop Woop amounts to a farce with a very unique (and appalling) storyline. The town Woop Woop is literally "off the map" and its inhabitants interact in a surreal and disturbing fashion.
Fleeing from danger in New York, the lead character (Johnathon Schaech) makes it to Australia, only to walk into a much bleaker situation - a kind of time-warp - where Daddy-O is the law, the judge, and the executioner. Rule number one: no-one escapes from Woop Woop.
Unfairly criticized as vulgar and offensive, many have missed what this film is all about. Properly understood, however, this makes for highly entertaining (if somewhat foreboding) viewing. Great stuff!

In my top three of All-time favorites. I always enjoy films that can be interpreted on different levels. On one level, just sheer odd and comical. There are so many memorable lines, similar to Office Space. On another level, the Aussies giving both the Americans and the Aussies heaps. ("heaps", the Aussie term for teasing). On a third level, the underlying dysfunctional character themes of control, manipulation and love. Stephan Elliot, the director, is very adept at making his characters and the situation they are in fully dimensional. You may need to watch it more than once to pursue its deeper messages but it is enjoyable from the first to at least the 15th viewing and beyond. Not neccesary, but possibly adding to your enjoyment would be an Aussie interpreter. Also try, The Castle, Muriel's Wedding, Lantana or Strictly Ballroom for more Aussie flavor. I enjoy Australian films for their focus on character development especially in a given situation. Australian films tend to rely less on special effects, gratuitous sexuality or big name actors to carry a film.
