Director: Bruce Beresford
"I hope your balls turn to bicycle wheels and backpedal up your arse!" - Barry McKenzie
Beer guzzling and sheila chasing are the order of the day when Barry (Barry Crocker) and his aunt Edna (Barry Humphries) fly off to Paris. Mistaken for the Queen (of course), Edna is kidnapped and destined to become a Transylvanian tourist attraction unless the Chunder From Down Under can get to her in time!
This riotous Aussie gem from director Bruce Beresford (Don's Party, Breaker Morant) is jam-packed with unforgettable ocker one-liners, and even features a healthy dose of kung fu fighting and a cameo from the then incumbent prime minister, Gough Whitlam. A bona fide lost Australian comedy classic.
