United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), WIDESCREEN (1.85:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: The Night We Called It a Day is an Australian comedy based on the true story of Frank Sinatra's uproarious visit to Sydney in 1974. The local press hounded him to high heaven, and in true Sinatra style he retaliated, dubbing the Aussie press 'fags and hookers', at his opening concert. It's 1974 and Rod (Joel Edgerton), a young music promoter, is in for his biggest challenge. He's convinced Frank Sinatra (Dennis Hopper) to come back to Oz. Now Rod's in for the ride of his life as everything that can go wrong does, and all Frank has to do is apologize! But there are two things Frank never does: "yawn in the presence of the woman he loves... and say sorry."
