It's a bit long - but then it was a long film.

Being a fellow Australian myself, I thought that it would be fun to do this review. I wasn't wrong. This article is really, really funny and I found myself laughing at the whole plot. I think the reason it worked so well was that you've taken a really innocent story (and main character) and turned it into an MA15+ flick. The parallels you draw from the original story to your one really work (I especially loved the fact that she travelled to the mystical world by getting drunk). The other thing I especially found funny were the songs. They were really good. Nice job on this front, Sog1970.
The concept of the "Australian" Wizard of Oz, while initially seeming boring, turns out to be the exact opposite of the original story and the feeling of the original story. This makes it especially effective and thus, you get 9 for concept.
Prose and formatting:
This isn't an encyclopedic article (with the exception of the intro), but this is probably more of a good thing than a bad thing. If you had done an encyclopedic plot synopsis, you would have lost 70% of all the jokes and one-liners that the script contains. You would have had to leave out a great deal of material, and since when does Uncyclopedia want that?
The formatting itself is very good. You use appropriate parameters for songs, pictures and captions. The article looks good and clean, and doesn't look like word vomit.
The images themselves (particularly a few) are very funny and add alot to the article. You lose 1.5 points because the captions don't really add much and they're not particularly funny.
This is just your average score using the "pee" template.
Well, it's obvious that you've put in a lot of work on this article, and you seem to have acheived the best of all Uncyclopedia worlds: humour, concept, formatting and pictures. In my opinion, there's not a lot more you can do. It made me laugh a lot, and that's really the main point of Uncyclopedia. The Wizard of Oz may be an alright film, but I reckon you could ring up Baz Luhrmann (the guy responsible for Australia) and he could redeem himself with the soon-to-be critcally acclaimed film: The Wizard of Aus. Nice job, Sog1970. Keep up the good work.
