This Australian comedy tracks the fantasy and real life adventures of a young outback lad who loves American country and western music. Part western, part road movie, and part prison flick, its unexpected twists and turns make for an interesting tale. (Warning: the prison in this movie is not the hardcore – it’s more of a low tech, television style a la Mayberry R.F.D. facility.) It’s a fun but somewhat uneven romp, enlivened by its unusual setting and lovely female lead, Miranda Otto. Some of the editing jumps in this film should be used by continuity people in their union negotiations when studios try to claim their salaries are a waste of money.
