CGiii Comment

When the Dame was just an aunty - this politically incorrect romp exposed a part of Australian culture that should be hidden from view. Woeful.

As for Beresford...from such humble (and atrocious) beginnings, he grew to be a notable director - all this film gives is hope to nascent crappy directors.

Perfect for the bin.
