The characters in the latest Bohemian Sikh like wedding are entertaining ... and the scenery is captured much better than our Nikon ever good ... Wortb watching on a large screen even better on opening night as the bag og of goodies and Aussie bubbly add value to the experience

Mrs MD was disappointed 😔 as the leading male role came with an English accent ... the tourism backers fail to understand that women not just here but overseas decide destinations for males - so do not expect huge visitor revenues .... next time consider Aussie characters as they have more depth

You can look around your community and celebrate the victories, point out what could be better, point out what’s wrong.”
