Best Cinema Roller Coaster in a long, long time...

Absolutely BANGIN! (kinda 70's to BRING IT ON!)

There's truly no other way to describe this amazing film, but to paraphrase it as one of the best cinema-safari roller coaster adventures ever, wouldn't be enough to justify it as a great cinematic ride that disregards age; political correctness - urine counteracts! - and/or nostalgia, because it's so much more than that.

Masterfully balanced with coherently and cohesive snapshots of a plethora of well-developed and superbly acted characters intermingling and intertwining on what seems to be a multi faceted camera being everywhere in that cul-de-sac at the same time, it's just sheer brilliance. A shout out to the editors on that front, they deserve it big time.

In its full swing - and boy does it swing - it delivers on every frame, in every word, set, memorabilia and costume, but personally to me it delivered the most when I noted that I was being challenged by Swinging Safari and realised I was not watching the same old, same old set up... or at least not the same old way of telling a story...
I should've known better by reading the writer-director credits.
It talked to me on the many creative possibilities that still can be found on this medium by breaking the stale conservative mould story-telling. A brave and risqu? move from the writer-director Stephan Elliott. A loud shout out to you too.

Very well played Sir, congratulations on a great achievement.
Vibrant, energetic, genuinely heartfelt, delightful and NEVER DULL.
Thank you so much for the fabulous ride, and restoring/challenging my funny bone.

Loved this movie more than I thought I would.

Simple yet brilliant accurate depiction of parenting/childhood during the 1970s. Any naysayers clearly were not brought up in this era. Wonderful fun, yet heartbreakly desperate teenage characters ground what could have been just a fluff piece. I could place every one of those characters into someone I knew from that era. The child actors were excellent. Hope to see a great deal more featuring Atticus Robb.

Ambitious Aussie comedy, amusing but not as funny as it wants to be

Firstly the positives - it looks great and the cast is fun. Set in an idyllic beach suburb street, with colourful 70's designs, and a big cast (everyone's good in this, both parents and kids), most Australians of a certain age will find something to like about this. But it's humorous without being hilarious or much of a good time. The script and editing have made it a bit of a muddle. The two main kids are very sweet, but their storyline has no climax - do they actually go to Melbourne? The behaviour of he parents is a mystery - for a while they're all friends and up for kinky fun, then after a key party they're all enemies for no apparent reason. The gross humour of the final whale scene is a spectacular but emotionally empty note to end on. And one 70's aspect that is completely wrong is the language - it's crude and un-PC (which is accurate for 70's Australia but gets annoying after a while), but leaves out the brilliant Aussie slang of the time. See Puberty Blues for an example of it done right. That language is truly funny and endearing and would have lightened the film.
