‘capital of australia’ in War of the Worlds

By cfi 30 June 2005 22

Canberra got a mention in this film, well.. it almost did

At the start of the new Tom Cruise film I just saw, War of the Worlds, the little girl asks him “Whats the capital of Australia?”, and he says something like “I dont know but my brother knows”..

I wonder if this had something to do with Rain Man, when Tom Cruise’s brother Dustin Hoffman in the film said “capital of australia, canberra” when he was talking about getting on a Qantas flight.

Are there any other Hollywood movies that mention Canberra?

What’s Your opinion?

The capacity/capabilityof some Aussies to play on the gullibility/ignorance of Americans is immense – someone in Sydney once told a visiting American friend that Kuringai Chase was where the Aboriginals chased kuringais – naturally she asked me what a ‘kuringai’ looked like. Like a koala maybe ?

MMORPG’s Cinimod ?

I’m active in some as well, it’s a hoot getting Yanks and Poms and the Colonies into the one conversation, it’s like putting Jamie Oliver, George Bush and you into a heated debate..
