Light New Zealand comedy
5 May 2001 | by (Palmerston North, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

A nice little New Zealand comedy about a high-school loser, who's family take on a beautiful exchange student from Canada.

Not very eye-catching or attention-grabbing, but OK to watch to by-pass a couple of hours.

It will probably mean a lot more to New Zealanders, however, as a lot of the cast are from Kiwi soap 'Shortland Street' - Dean O'Gorman, Angela Bloomfield, Sydney Jackson and Jay Saussey are just a few.

All-in-all, I'd give it about a 4/10. It gets a bit boring, but I love Angela Bloomfield, and she was worth the watch alone!
