Australian small-town cop Gary (Eck) enjoys his nearly pastoral existence, with traffic violations providing the major excitement to his normally low-key days. While away from work, Gary spends a good deal of time fantasizing about local news reporter Julia (Kirstie Hutton), who would just as soon relocate to the thriving metropolis of Sydney. Soon, however, a motorcyclist is found decapitated, with a construction worker, a sailor, and a cowboy and Indian also meeting the same fate. With some murderous weirdo with some sort of Village People fixation terrorizing the town, Gary -- with the help of big-wig city detective and Don Johnson-wannabe Tony Charles (Mir) -- begins to realize that a cop is the last remaining victim to be murdered in order for the killings to be complete. ...

Adam F (it) wrote: This movie was right up my alley. It was dark and quirky and just weird enough to carry the concept until the end. The lead actors were instantly likable as a young couple who didn't end up quite where they thought they would as grownups and found a magical shortcut to make all their dreams come true. Very funny cautionary tale.

Dustin G (br) wrote: A fun romp that movie lovers will get an extra kick out of. Some funny stuff and entertaining most of the time. I can't say I enjoy Travolta at his most smug for almost two full hours, but he's surrounded by a talented cast, which helps. Not as fun or as good as reading the book, but a good adaptation.

Racetrack vibe and back water dive bar scenes are quite realistic. See Robbie Coltrane, pre-Harry Potter, and Cynthia Nixon, before 'SE# in the City', AND an irreverent Teri Garr shines and simmers as only she can. This would make a great staged play with Matthew Broderick. The superb Trevor Denman, as the race caller, is the cherry on the cake.
Paul D (ru) wrote: Cult, but not classic. The alien timewarp story is a non-starter and never really takes off, but this along with its setting is clearly conducive for making a film with a low-budget, most of which has gone on the very non-special effects.
