PLEASANT LITTLE COMEDY
25 August 1999 | by (Boston, Ma) – See all my reviews

A mildly amusing coming-of-age movie from New Zealand, somewhat hampered by an excessively hyperactive performance from David O'Gorman. If only he had been a little less insufferably horny. Teenage boys may have one-track minds, but they don't necessarily make for good movies. Supporting performances are generally good if one-dimensional. Nothing much new here, but an amusing little time-killer.
