Australian nostalgia trip

on 12/14/2012

Early Dame Edna takes her UK-born Australian nephew back to England to merry on a local girl of whose mother arranged this trip on her expense. Showing the England of the seventies as seen by an Australian-bread lad and lad's behavioral features as seen by local Pomes distinguishes traditionally between Australia and mother country of England by usual made-in-Australia way.

Bought this for my hubby who was an Australian in London at the same time as Bazza. He loved the gift. Though I am not a fan of Dame Edna-I loved the one-eyed trouser snake song sung by Barry. Ahead of it's time buddy comedy-although he doesn't always have a buddy irreverent humor. A piece of history.

Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review Satirist Barry Humphries has put his talents to a film, as coauthor and costar. The result is what one would expect if the Marx Brothers were put into an Aussie-brand Carry On pic. It's based on a comic strip [The Wonderful World of Barry McKenzie], written by Humphries, around a very Aussie character in London known as Bazza...Barry Crocker plays title role of the gauche young Aussie visiting Britain for the first time. His turns of phrases are witty and original, often with a bawdy twinge, and although much is in the Australian vernacular (frequently invented by Humphries), few are likely to miss the drift of the remarks.

Gary Couzens, DVD Times ...a militantly lowbrow, very un-PC comedy, full of basic, scatalogical humour...deserving of its place in film history...
