Eagle vs Shark (2007)
In Wellington, Lily is a wallflower, inexplicably attracted to Jerrod, a loser. He's nursing a decade-long grudge against someone who teased him in high school; she's just out of a job. She goes home with him to a seacoast town where he intends to have it out with his nemesis; she meets his father, his daughter from a one-night stand, and other family members - and there's the memory of his talented (and dead) brother. Jerrod treats Lily badly, invents a relationship with a women he had a crush on years before, and gears up for his fight. Will she finally have enough and go home?
Eagle vs Shark is the tale of two socially awkward misfits and the strange ways they try to find love; through revenge on high-school bullies, burgers, and video games.
- Love blossoms for Lily over the double Meaty Boy burgers at mid-day when uber-computer nerd comes in and leaves with free extra large fries. After gatecrashing Jarrod's party and proving her skills on the console kicking butt, Lily goes down to Jarrod's home town so he can settle an old score with a past school bully.
Jarrod goes into training helped by the fiancee of his dead brother, so Lily turns to his family for company and comfort, who warm to her after a frosty start. Lily reconciles father and son, and uncovers the true fate of the dead brother.
Jarrod meets his nemesis and goes on to recognise and declare his love for Lily, having shunned Lily throughout the film.
