Good for a laugh but not much else
3 November 2003 | by I_am_meSee all my reviews

I have to admit the only reason I sought this out was because I'm a Kevin Smith fan, and lets face it - we won't be seeing anything new from him sadly.

If you want a movie that will make you think - run your brain around on a wheel like a small mouse, well, look somewhere else. The scenery is rather nice, but most of New Zealand's green hills are. Someone not familiar with Kiwi life may however, come to the conclusion that everyone runs around with no pants on in nothing but their wellies.

It is good for a laugh though! Don't expect anything and you might just enjoy it. If for nothing else watch it for the gorgeous God of War who pops in as an All Blacks player *sigh*. The cast do a good job with not much to work with and they have to be applauded for that.
