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.

All over the shop

I grew up in this era and expected to be entertained. Big disappointment. I wanted to walk out on it in the first 5mins but stuck in there at least for a while till I did. The nostalgia of costuming and food,toys and living of the times were spot, not all the music fitted the era. On the whole movie lacked cohesion of a entertaining story. eg what was with the Magda Subanski Sharon like character with the cricket bat???? I would be embarrassed if I was an actor to have this on my resume. I expect much more from Aussie movies.

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.
