Storyline

If you see only one documentary about lesbian, country-singing, comedian twins from New Zealand, make this the one! Jools and Linda Topp have become phenomenally successful among the Kiwis for the sprightly combination of comical characters and catchy ditties, and this exuberant film captures the joy they bring both to their performance and to their daily lives. If you aren't already a Topp Twins fans, you'll be one by the end of this delightful doc. Written by Outfest Film Festival

good Kiwi stuff
27 May 2009 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

A great documentary - well balanced mixture of interviews, performances, old news clips ... Just so easy to watch and enjoy. And I was on a plane ... Doesn't really feel like a documentary in places, because the story of these sisters' lives is so entertaining, both the good bits and the sad bits. Well done to director Leanne Pooley and everyone else who helped put this tribute together. Everyone from the sisters themselves, their parents, partners, colleagues and friends. I'm only writing this to fill up the space, but it did make me feel good to see such a high quality, warm-hearted and totally Kiwi tribute to a totally Kiwi legend like the Topp Twins.
