Not to be missed!
2 June 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

What a great movie this is! If you like to be entertained and have a good laugh, you will like this movie. It is a very interesting tale of two remarkable Kiwi women who are identical twins. It charts their lives from early years growing up on a farm, their involvement in New Zealand's political and social issues of the times, and their rise to fame on the national and international stage. The subjects are likable and down to earth, and funny and spirited. They have an amazing joyous attitude throughout everything, and the audience can feel this. The singing of the twins is also great, with beautiful harmonies. It is presented in a straight forward and simple style, which is perfect, as the main subjects are so diverse. The director has allowed the twins' humorous eccentricities, their love of life, and strong joyful spirits to shine through! Don't miss it!
