It's no mystery why Baz Luhrmann's outback epic was such a flop.

Starring Nicole Kidman as a twittering English toff who inherits a cattle ranch, and Hugh Jackman as the shirtless drover who gets her hot under the collar, the film has two separate stories, one after the other.

Still, there's plenty of rip-roaring derring-do to enjoy, and it plays better on DVD when you can stop it halfway through and watch the second segment another night.
