1975: 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. Behind closed doors, the Mums and Dads of a quiet suburban street are going to celebrate in their own special way, by joining the sexual revolution and throwing a wife-swapping key party. And like the rotting whale, it’s all about to go spectacularly wrong.

If you didn’t grow up during the ‘70s in Australia, this movie would probably be a complete waste of time. If you did, then it will bring back memories of a lot of cultural and social goings-on that you may want to forget or, in some cases, celebrate. It’s by no means a great movie, but it is fun, and there are quite a few laughs to be had. According to the director, it’s quite autobiographical. Some big names are acting in the movie: Guy Pearce, Kylie Minogue, Radha Mitchell, Julian McMahon, and Asher Kiddie. They let their hair down and give it their best shot — you’ll see some of them in a new type of role! The story is pretty thin, but the whole point is to survey what was going on in the ‘70s — at least, for these families! The soundtrack is, of course, the ‘70s. It is what it is. It’s a mixed bag. See at your own peril!
