Cool tunes, fun choreography, great early 80's punk rock musical with Aussie twist. The more I watch 70's and 80's flicks, I am convinced the world has been slowly going down the shitter since the 90s. Is this due to tech? Eh not the right place for such a convo. Just a cool flick, although My Brilliant Career is the more essential viewing in Armstrongs canon. 4 stars, really fun!
Good fun, a bit of a trifle and not a major work in the Armstrong oeuvre but enjoyable nevertheless.
As a side note, subtitles would have been helpful, but I got the general idea of what was being said. :)
"My Brilliant Career" is one of my all-time favorites. Not so much this one. Good swimming pool number a la Busby Berkeley. The rest falls into a category of film for me that includes "Rocky Horror Picture Show," "The Blues Brothers," and "Hairspray." No matter how sternly I lecture myself to stay awake during screenings, I inevitably fall sound asleep. This sound mix did had some great background ADR lines.
