  • Aussie Pre-Ring Tone

    Do you remember an Aussie film where there were (I think) three peeps. One bird, two blokes. A simpleton and a couple.
    There was summat about a car splitting in two to go through a narrow alley.
    It had a classic distinctive theme tune:
    Do-de-do-de-do--doo
    Which was the tones of a phone.

      Yay! That's the one, cheers Claudine.
      Wasn't the accordian music in the second part of the trailer used again in Napolian Dynamite?
      I definately heard it in something else...
      But it's the phone-tone one me really likes

            Another one I need to see, thanks guys, you're costing me a fortune. I love Aussie films, massively underrated.

            Talking of simpletons, anyone seen Bad Boy Bubby? It's a Rolf de Heer flick about a bloke who was imprisoned by his mother and kept as a sex slave until he escapes, dot dot dot. Dark and hilarious.

            How about Kenny, a mockumentary about a bloke who delivers portaloos to festivals. Great quote: what you got to understand is there is a smell in here that is going to outlast religion, all right? So can you just give me ears a rest for a minute? Marvellous

              Watched some clips of Bad Boy Bubby after you mentioned it. Looks bizzarre! Has it been on terrestrial tv cos I think I've seen at least some of it.
              You're right about Aussie films. They have a flavour all of their own, often quite surreal.
              Been wracking my brains over a "Being There" oddball type character from a season of Aussie films I saw about ten years ago. It was visually very interesting, and I'd always thought it was an early Hugo Weaving film but I don't see anything in his filmography it could be.
              Anyway, would like to see Malcolm again. Not seen it for donkeys' years.

                Buddies, The Club and Warming Up. Three of the funniest films ever. I'm still hoping to get a copy of Warming Up. Don's Party is pretty good too.

                    I have not seen these films, but I would really like to see them. I heard about two films before, but did not find it at the box office. Where can you get them?
