AUSTRALIA IS ALL ABOUT HUGH JACKMAN'S PHYSIQUE
SOMEBODY’S in love with Hugh Jackman and if we didn’t know better we’d guess it was “Australia” director Baz Luhrmann. This is the first movie we’ve seen in which the leading MAN’s clothes were tighter than the leading lady’s. Hugh is lovingly photographed throughout the movie and when he has a shirt on, it’s SKIN TIGHT. Not to mention his pants. How a cowboy could possibly function in such attire without splitting a seam is never explained. Unfortunately, this added yet another element of artificiality to this fantasy/drama. The title “Australia” implies a historical epic of grand proportion and we were disappointed that it turned out to be just a contrived love story.
