Maybe you have to be Australian...
One of the toughest film genres a local film industry attempts to sell to a foreign country is the comedy. That's because every country has its own sense of humor, and can find things funny that another country will not find funny. I think that's the case for "The Adventures of Barry McKenzie", a movie that seems geared for Australians alone. I will admit that even as a non-Australian I did find the occasional moment in the movie to be somewhat amusing, but for the most part I was kind of mystified as to why I should find the movie hilarious. Though I didn't laugh that much, I will admit that I didn't find the movie too much of a chore to sit through. The movie moves from one vignette to another (there really isn't much of a plot) at a quick pace, so things don't get boring. Also, I will admit that Barry Crocker as the title figure gives a very appealing performance despite his character's crude tone and beer-swilling. If you are curious about seeing a foreign country's idea of humor and are prepared not to laugh that much, you could do worse than this movie.
