A con artist escapes a deal gone wrong in New York and winds up in the Aussie outback in a strange town whose inhabitants are an oddball collection of misfits.
The back cover sleeve notes of the book by Michael Winkler about the making of this movie, "Fahfangoolah! The Despised and Indispensable Welcome to Woop Woop" (2016), read: "Welcome to Woop Woop worst Australian movie of all time, or invaluable cultural artefact? With wild behind-the-scenes stories featuring Rod Taylor, Susie Porter, Johnathon Schaech, Barry Humphries, Stephan Elliott and a drunk clown; the mapping of links to other outback films; and a detailed argument for its place in the national canon, this companion is as vibrant and provocative as the movie that inspired it."
Fuck me dead, what's that when it's at home?
Angie: Yeah? I know what me Daddy-O would say, I can just hear him, All we get in Woop Woop is that Rogersan
Angie: Rogersan, y'know Rogersan Hammerstein?
After the credits the movie picks up "15 years later" with a twist ending.
Version shown at Cannes was 106 minutes; distributor Goldwyn recut it to the 97-minute released length.
