A kiwi love story with lots of funny bits
22 February 2011 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

At the end of this movie I realised my face was tired from smiling so hard. It was a fun movie with plenty of laughs. Especially funny was the trip to the bird sanctuary and the lip-synched end credits.

The romance unfolded slowly and sweetly and realistically and the movie managed to make me care about the characters and hope things would work out for them.

The duck - sorry Shelduck - in the movie was very cute and not at all annoying like I had feared it might be. And who couldn't resist a duck who likes listening to Queen music?

While the lead actor Rhys Darby is usually a comedian, I thought his acting and screen presence was up to the challenge of this feature length film.
