Fun, disarming and musically provocative, the Topp Twins are New Zealand's finest lesbian country and western singers and the country's greatest export since rack of lamb and the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy.
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

Rarely have I been so moved that I roared with laughter, tears obscuring the screen. No-one objected as everyone was also in such a joyous mood. Mind you, there could have been a few tears for the tough times, but somehow these girls just let you enjoy their triumph over adversity. This is a documentary that feels like a good movie script with superb actors. Damn, they are good! How often does one instinctively clap the credits? This is a winner, believe me, no matter where you live. The twins are unique international comedians of the first order and have been directed with the lightest of touches so bringing forth all their artistry. A rare and great combination. Thank you all.
