Did You Know?


Was initially restricted by the New Zealand Office of Film & Literature Classification to adults over 18 because of what the Office considered "conspicuous and substantial" drinking of alcohol without showing the consequences, and also for a scene where some characters throw a barbecue's gas bottle onto a fire and watch it explode. The film's distributors appealed to the Film & Literature Board of Review, and the rating was subsequently reduced to R15. Producer Steve Sachs thanked Chief Censor Bill Hastings for the free publicity. See more »

High cringe factor, but funny and heartwarming
10 November 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Savage Honeymoon is a well judged movie that pokes fun at certain aspects of New Zealand life, yet at the same time deals with some fundamental issues of family values.

The Savages are not a perfect family, but then again, what family is? They do plenty of things wrong, provide some hilarious moments, and show us a little about what holds a family together when the chips are down. Applause to the director and cast for maintaining a good balance and not going overboard on the laughs, the violence, or the mushy stuff.

I enjoyed this movie, but only hope that people don't come away thinking all NZ families are like this.
