Te Aho Eketone-Whitu,
Viago, Deacon and Vladislav are vampires who are finding that modern life has them struggling with the mundane - like paying rent, keeping up with the chore wheel, trying to get into nightclubs and overcoming flatmate conflicts.
In Wellington, Lily is a wallflower, inexplicably attracted to Jerrod, a loser. He's nursing a decade-long grudge against someone who teased him in high school; she's just out of a job. She goes home with him to a seacoast town where he intends to have it out with his nemesis; she meets his father, his daughter from a one-night stand, and other family members - and there's the memory of his talented (and dead) brother. Jerrod treats Lily badly, invents a relationship with his deceased brother's fiancée, and gears up for his fight. Will she finally have enough and go home?Written by
After Lily's monologue as well as the 3-D animation intro, the poster promoting Meaty Boy features a guy holding a burger while kissing a girl. The couple in this poster is Loren Taylor's real life sister, Anna Horsley with her boyfriend, Dylan Taylor. See more »

I saw this movie at Sundance 2007. I really enjoyed watching this show, I caught about 5 movies in 4 days and this was the best out of all of them.
This movie was entertaining, I was never bored. It reminded me of Napoleon Dynamite however different enough to not be a rip off. All the characters were great! They added exactly what was needed in this movie to make it fun to watch.
Favorite Quote "Some people don't have sleeping bags"
Anyway this is really worth a watch and look forward to having a copy at home to watch over and over.
