Absolutely BANGIN! (kinda 70's to BRING IT ON!)
There's truly no other way to describe this amazing film, but to paraphrase it as one of the best cinema-safari roller coaster adventures ever, wouldn't be enough to justify it as a great cinematic ride that disregards age; political correctness - urine counteracts! - and/or nostalgia, because it's so much more than that.
Masterfully balanced with coherently and cohesive snapshots of a plethora of well-developed and superbly acted characters intermingling and intertwining on what seems to be a multi faceted camera being everywhere in that cul-de-sac at the same time, it's just sheer brilliance. A shout out to the editors on that front, they deserve it big time.
In its full swing - and boy does it swing - it delivers on every frame, in every word, set, memorabilia and costume, but personally to me it delivered the most when I noted that I was being challenged by Swinging Safari and realised I was not watching the same old, same old set up... or at least not the same old way of telling a story...
I should've known better by reading the writer-director credits.
It talked to me on the many creative possibilities that still can be found on this medium by breaking the stale conservative mould story-telling. A brave and risqu? move from the writer-director Stephan Elliott. A loud shout out to you too.
Very well played Sir, congratulations on a great achievement.
Vibrant, energetic, genuinely heartfelt, delightful and NEVER DULL.
Thank you so much for the fabulous ride, and restoring/challenging my funny bone.

Australia, 1975. The beach suburb of Nobbys Beach is a place that revolves around surf mats, baby oil, boxed wine and the new miracle of Kentucky Fried Chicken. 14 year-old Jeff tries to find his feet in a world changing faster than his hormones, and deal with his crush on shy and sensitive girl-next-door Melly. When the beach town suddenly hits the spotlight after the body of a 200-ton whale is washed ashore, Jeff and Melly think it's the biggest thing that ever happened in their lives. Meanwhile, their eccentric parents are catching up with the sexual revolution that has also washed up on Australia's beaches. And just like the decaying whale, it's all about to go spectacularly wrong.
