Time Out says

Beware rollicking heroines, especially from the perpetrator of Stork and Alvin Purple. The factual history of Eliza Fraser (shipwrecked and conscripted as a member of an aboriginal tribe) is thrown away in a lumberingly burlesque period romp about a lady with a roving eye, and a pompously straitlaced husband, who becomes involved in a farce of lusty humiliations before ending up peddling a spicy account of her adventures in carnivals. Moments of bizarrerie escape the general heavy-handedness, but the more serious purpose evident in David Williamson's script - of confronting sexual attitudes and hypocrisies - doesn't get a look in.
