Cool String was not recognized as a valid DateTime

The folllowing line of code gives the error: String was not recognized as a valid DateTime. This happens at runtime, everything compiles with no problem.
I tried substuting DateTime.Now and got the same error. I also tried the commented out solution below, all trials gave the same error. At this point I'm out of ideas.

P.S. This is from Chapter 9, the Movie class setup. I commented out all the code to focus on getting the first Movie added and have had no luck up to this point.

System.DateTime str_date = DateTime.Parse("15/6/2001");

//System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCul ture("en_AU").DateTimeFormat);
