      martin a The only good thing about this film is Dame Edna Everage aka Barry Humphries who appears in a few segments as the aunt, whos nephew goes to London to advance his cultural education and falls into a variety of scrapes, but it is racist, homophobic and badly dated, one yearns for the scenes with Barry Humphreys to appear as that is the only saving grace of this long drawn out, unfunny film Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review delysid d if only we could go back to those days Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/17/21 Full Review Audience Member Best Aussie comedy of all time Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Lewd, crude, boorish, and at times downright piss funny! Bazza's adventure in 'Pommyland' is Barry Humphries' idea of the extreme Aussie tourist. Littered with rhyming slang that couldn't even be interpreted in Dickensian London, it's one of the first true examples of the emerging 'Ozploitation' genre. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member good one from down under Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Silly, childish, irreverent humour, playing to all the stereotypes. Not without laughs, & pretty much what you'd expect. Still watchable so probably a classic of its time & genre. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
