Swinging Safari

(2017)

Bad hair. Bad style. Bad choices. Good times.

Guy Pearce and Kylie Minogue lead this comedy set in mid-'70s Australia about a beached whale, the kids who can't get enough of it, and their sexually promiscuous parents. From the writer-director of The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.... More

A 200-ton blue whale gets washed up on a local beach and the kids think it’s the biggest thing that’s ever happened in Australia.

And like the rotting whale, it’s all about to go spectacularly wrong.Hide

The Press Reviews

  • A fun enough time, to be sure, but jokes about knitwear, bad haircuts and fondue parties only get you so far. Full Review

  • Swinging Safari is so crammed with in-jokes and memorabilia, the quieter moments are almost drowned out... But the film still offers movie goers a distinctive, exuberant, quintessentially Australian experience. Full Review

  • An energetic, irreverent, autobiographically inspired affair filled with key swapping, children running amok and a rotting 200-tonne whale, the film proves a mixed bag but, given the era on display, its messiness always feels appropriate. Full Review

  • Is this outrageous comedy sexy or revolting? Elliott proves - though this feels like the least of his achievements - that a film can be both. Full Review

  • As he did so winningly in "Priscilla" and 1997's unfairly overlooked outback comedy "Welcome to Woop Woop," Elliott celebrates Australian identity with genuine love while simultaneously roasting it over the coals of no-holds-barred satire and parody. Full Review
