Storyline

"The Devil Dared Me To" follows the story of daredevil stuntman Randy Cambell and his quest to follow in his late father's footsteps and become New Zealand's greatest daredevil stuntman. Ever since growing up as a young boy on a remote New Zealand sheep-farm, Randy has dreamed of performing the ultimate daredevil stunt: jumping across Cook Strait in a rocket car. It is this dream that sends him on his quest from the South Island sheep farm to the bright lights of Auckland city. Along the way Randy teams up with the traveling misfit stunt-team the Timaru Hellriders, is employed by mentor-turned nemesis stunt co-ordinator Dick Johansonson, and meets the love of his life, the one-legged cunning stunt babe Tracy "Tragedy" Jones.

Narrator: Below you is the ass end of the world. The country you can see is the land known as New Zealand.

Spanning these two imaginitively titles isles is a turbulence stretch of water known as the Cook Strait. It has been swam across and rode across, and thousands cross every day by ferry and plane. But only one man has ever tried to jump it. His name is Randy Cambell, and this ...

F****** Fantastic
18 October 2011 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This film is an example of classic Kiwi comedy. It embodies the true in-your-face, slapstick, and quite frankly brilliantly stupid humour of those two little islands in the pacific that wont let anyone tell them what to do.

Based around the premise of a young boys dream to become a daredevil stuntman this film is filled with in-jokes, sometimes slightly racist (against New Zealanders don't worry)slurs and a sense that the guys who made it had fun so who are you to judge its quality.

It may not have great acting or a well developed plot but if you sit back and take the film for what it is you cant go wrong.

I've watched it about 4 times and cried with laughter on each occasion although I understand that this might be hard for someone from outside New Zealand to achieve.
