New Zealand humour rules
3 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

The actors are very credible and the script is funny. I felt really interested and worried about the protagonists. I watched it online, because I certainly wouldn't find it in my country to buy, which is a pity. There are many worse and unoriginal (comedy) movies out there with higher ratings. Unfortunately, I feel many people don't understand NZ humour. I love it, it's the only one I can watch again and again. Anyway this is really a great piece of anti-romance. Like most NZ films I have seen, it is quirky, unusual and pretty eccentric. I strongly recommend this film to expand your point of view of what comedy is, can or should be.
