Summary "In this fan-bloody-tastic classic, Australia's favourite wild colonial boy, Barry McKenzie, journeys to the old country accompanied by his Aunt Edna Everage to take a Captain Cook and further his cultural and intellectual education. Faster than a rat up a drainpipe, Bazza heads for Earl's Court to catch up with a bonzer bunch of ex-pat bastards - and from there rampages through London, cracking tubes, parking the tiger, pointing percy, flashing the nasty and handing out knuckle-sandwiches to the unsuspecting Poms - who wouldn't even know a tram was up 'em 'till the bell rang! Barry Humphries, Barry Crocker, Spike Milligan and Peter Cook star in this ground breaking flick that captured Bazza's celebrated yawn in glorious technicolor and put the Oz fillum industry on the map! ..." --container.
Barry McKenzie: "Now listen mate, I need to splash the boots. You know, strain the potatoes. Water the horses. You know, go where the big knobs hang out. Shake hands with the wife's best friend? Drain the dragon? Siphon the python? Ring the rattlesnake? You know, unbutton the mutton? Like, point Percy at the porcelain?" Blanche: "I think he wants to go to the loo." --IMDb.
