      2003 | Australia | Laughs: 2.0 (Watch Once) | imdb: 6.7

A man in dire need of escaping the tedium of his suburban life ties air balloons to a chair to see if they will lift him in the air, to discover that his cooky idea works all too well as he is carried high into the skies, to finally land in a country town where, incognito and while half the country is looking for him, he starts to live a blissful life among fast friends.

Don't expect big laughs out of this cute little rom-com—even though every viewer knows this moment is coming all along, my biggest chuckle was when the chair is airlifted—but I expect you'll find it entertaining enough for the demands of a movie date. The lead character has that constant smirk that most will find charming and a few irritating. Although not in the same league as The Castle and The Wog Boy, it is a worthwhile window into Australian culture.

I'm not sure how I managed to miss the movie when it came out—I was living in a suburb of Sydney then—but watching the film fifteen years later arouses nostalgia for a country that has known such growth and other changes that in many respects it is no longer recognizable. (Last viewed: May 2018)
