Scott, Mom, and I saw Australia (IMDB.com) on Saturday. I loved Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge! and Romeo + Juliet so I was looking forward to his latest movie. Australia started off with a whimsical first chapter, but the rest of the movie was straight forward and not as stylized like his prior two movies. The story was predictable with a lot of cliches and melodrama.
Overall, I liked this movie. It was a little long, but the characters were still interesting, beautifully shot, and well paced. The gratuitous shots of Hugh Jackman helped keep my interest too.
