Trivia

The radio station 90.2 (Mhz) that Grant and Paul are listening to in the car on the way out of Auckland is called "The Rock". See more »

Goofs

When the boys turn off the expressway and come to the sign "West Coast (37)", this is completely in the wrong location. Highway 37 is several hundred kilometers to the south in the Waitomo region. The sign "West Coast (37)" was a prop used at Pokeno, just south of Auckland. See more »

Excellent
19 May 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Very good movie. I really had fun watching it and just can't wait for the DVD to see it again!! The story seems a bit complicated at first, with several characters introduced at once and quite a lot of twists and turns, and you don't really see where it's leading to, which is a bit unusual for this type of movie. But you shouldn't let it put you off. The rest of the movie is a very fun ride, full of twists and surprises.

I really don't believe you have to come from New Zealand to enjoy it, like some previous comments seemed to say.. Looking forward to seeing what Greg Page will do next!
