Australia is not nearly the terrible movie it’s financial failure – at least in this country – would have you believe. It’s also not the great, undiscovered gem you might think, either. But your enjoyment probably depends upon your tolerance for obviously fake special effects and also how monstrous you find Nicole Kidman’s botoxed-forehead. I can remember when she used to be beautiful – more-than beautiful, but at this point I’m a straight man who’d rather make out with Hugh Jackman than her.
