If you watch to the credits the movie will actually just play itself again without stopping.

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

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Widescreen presentation enhanced for 16x9 TVs. Some shimmer and artifacts, but overall picture was adequate. Rainbow and shimmer effect on end titles, so it could use improvement. As in the two other on demand titles from MGM, movie starts right away after inserted into player. No top menu.

The other two MGM On Demand titles (The Group and Two For The SeeSaw were both fine and without defect, but in my opinion, the quality of the Warner Archive and Universal Vault on demand titles were better).

DEFECTIVE: Copy I received has major defect at about 57.30 into the film and lasts for a couple of minutes, (yes I did check if there was surface dirt on the disc). Returned the disc for a replacement.

UPDATE: The replacement disc has the same flaw in the exact same place. Returning the DVD until I hear if they get the source fixed. Not a good start for MGM on demand.

Too bad. Woop Woop is quirky and fun. Johnathon Schaech is great! This film really deserves a formal release DVD or Blu-Ray.

Aspect Ratio
I know the question about aspect ratio was posted many months ago, but I just received this title as a gift and am happy to report that it is in Widescreen and not in Pan & Scam! The case does not specify the aspect ratio, it only says "Widescreen", but judging by the size of the black... Read More
