I recently watched this film and i must say i thought that it was absolutly brilliant. It is the story of six people and their individual lives and how they collide with one another.
This movie hosts a number of lesser known stars, as well as a few well known ones (such as Hugo Weaving as a movie producer).
The three girls are all good friends throughout the film, as are the boys and i must say that if you are a fan of realistic movies that relate closly to life stories of every day people then this film is a must see.

I was attracted to this one when I saw Naomi Watts and Claudia Karvan billed. Naomi Watts has been in some top movies recently and also has been good in everything I have seen her in. Similarly even though Claudia Karvan is hardly a household name what I have seen her in I've really liked. For me it helps that it is an Aussie movie, I love the way their minds work and find their movies more interesting than many formulaic "Hollywood" movies. So I'd never heard of the movie but thought it worth giving it a go and it was great!
Really easy watching, calling it a chick flick is probably realistic but doesn't do it justice. It is definitely one to curl up on the sofa with a glass of wine, but it is a good movie, I've recommended it to a couple of friends. None of the guys are what I would consider drop dead gorgeous, they are more like "real" people, if in a slightly screwed up fashion! The women are great, if you met them at a party you know you were at a good fun party! Certainly worth an hour and a half of your life.

Good laugh, great soundtrack, well worth a look. 3 Feb 2004
By Sailoil - Published on
A film in the mould of "This Years Love" and "Peters Friends", Strange Planet follows the ups and downs in a year of the lives of six twentysomethings living in Sydney, Australia.
It is a film that delves into the insecurities, hopes and dreams of the young professional set. But it avoids the temptation to become maudlin and weepy, remaining upbeat at all times. One character, Ewan, collapses into depression, but after watching the movie Taxi Driver, assumes DeNiro's role with hilarious consequences.
In another potentially weepie moment one of the girls dumps her married boyfriend at a costume party where his dracula outfit is a perfect counterpoint to his hangdog expression as he gets the push.
The girls are all beautiful, the boys handsome but mildly pathetic, which is just about right for the movie. The characters are a little forced but they aren't overdone, so they work. We have a girl who is sleeping her way to a career, her slightly manic compulsive friend who can't get her life toghether after being dumped and their more frumpy but wild mad hatter alternative friend. Does that sound a bit like Rachel, Monica and Phoebe from friends?
The guys are a science freak who is desperate to be married, a workaholic lawyer who's girlfriend dumped him for another girl, and the disenchanted lawyer who becomes a taxi driver and novelist. There are bound to be similarities drawn between these and the characters in friends, but they are likely to be forced.
The end of the movie is rounded off nicely with a perfect conjunction of all the disparate elements and characters in a typical Austrialian beach celebration of the New Year.
Excellent, well worth a look.
