Swinging Safari

You know you’re watching a film that revels in its own bad taste when it casually pans past a magazine cover touting Karen Carpenter’s new wonder diet. Crass, colorful and hanging together by the barest of threads, Swinging Safari is the new comedy from Stephan Elliott, reuniting here with Guy Pearce, who starred in the director’s 1994 smash, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. Edge of Fear Set in 1975 and loosely inspired by Elliott’s childhood, it also reunites Pearce and Kylie Minogue (Holy Motors), whose careers began together on the iconic local soap Neighbours.

Like that show, Swinging Safari is set mostly on one street. The film follows three families, as seen from the point of view of 14-year-old Jeff Marsh (Atticus Robb), a boy with a Super-8 camera, lots of enthusiasm but no plot. One comes along, or so a voiceover supplied by the adult Jeff (Richard Roxburgh) tells us, when a giant whale washes up at Nobbys Beach, the sunny seaside town he calls home. Just how the whale powers the plot never becomes clear. Its chief reason for being seems to be a demolition in Nomis the film’s blubber- and blood-drenched finale overseen by the Mayor (Jack Thompson), who’s worried about the impact of the carcass on the tourist trade, in one of the film’s numerous nods to 1975’s Jaws.

The whale rots on the beach, unable to escape, and Jeff feels just as stuck. His home life is a mess, thanks chiefly to a disastrous decision by next-door neighbor Jo Jones (Radha Mitchell), Loro 1 the kaftan-wearing wife of Rick (Julian McMahon, sporting his native accent for the first time in decades), to throw a swingers party. Invited are Jeff’s parents, Gale and Bob (Asher Keddie and Jeremy Sims), and Keith and Kaye Hall (Pearce and Minogue). But when one of the group gets cold feet, the evening ends in recriminations and wounded pride, and the street becomes a battleground.
