Once back in the clutches of Father Benedictus (played brilliantly in a pantomime stylie by Geoffrey Rush), his life takes a turn for the miserable almost straight away. Then he makes the decision to stand up for his rights. This means that, despite performing a cracking tune with the refrain `There's nothing I would rather be, than to be an aborigine', he has to do a runner. This is the start of a road trip which will involves tramps, hippies and more adventures than you can shake a stick at.
I am not big on musicals, but this one is really funny, has real charm and some brilliantly over the top performances. The fab named Ernie Dingo (`Crocodile Dundee II') playing Uncle Tadpole is a case in point. Some of the acting is a bit third rate rep but because of the passion that jumps off the screen you really won't be too bothered.
This is just a load of fun, check out the treatment given to Tammy Wynette's `Stand by Your Man', just magical. So with a mix of original tunes and some well known numbers, the obligatory dance routines and black and white good and bad with some extra marital sex and a huge dose of fun thrown in - this all adds up to a really cracking little film. It put a smile on my face so I can only recommend.
Be prepared to have these songs stuck in your head for days!
