Australia Votes ‘The Castle’ As Favourite Movie Of All Time

A poll, conducted by YouGov, which was published in The Sunday Telegraph, has found that the 1997 hit The Castle is Australia's favourite movie.

Co-writer of the Castle, Rob Stitch said a huge part of its enduring success was how the characters were portrayed. 

'Why has it endured? The cast played it beautifully. No small matter,' Rob told the publication. 'Television repeats have also been a big part.' 

He believes evidence of the show's success was obvious with Australians regularly using lines from the film like, 'How's the serenity?' In their everyday lives.

According to the poll results, Australia’s favourite movie surpassed Muriel’s Wedding and other classics, with the results below

  1. The Castle 
  2. Crocodile Dundee 
  3. Mad Max 
  4. Priscilla: Queen of the Desert 
  5. Happy Feet
