Storyline

"The Devil Dared Me To" follows the story of daredevil stuntman Randy Cambell and his quest to follow in his late father's footsteps and become New Zealand's greatest daredevil stuntman. Ever since growing up as a young boy on a remote New Zealand sheep-farm, Randy has dreamed of performing the ultimate daredevil stunt: jumping across Cook Strait in a rocket car. It is this dream that sends him on his quest from the South Island sheep farm to the bright lights of Auckland city. Along the way Randy teams up with the traveling misfit stunt-team the Timaru Hellriders, is employed by mentor-turned nemesis stunt co-ordinator Dick Johansonson, and meets the love of his life, the one-legged cunning stunt babe Tracy "Tragedy" Jones. Written by Karl Zohrab

Narrator: Below you is the ass end of the world. The country you can see is the land known as New Zealand. It's a pretty simple place, really - the North Island - that's the good one - and the South Island, which sucks. Spanning these two imaginitively titles isles is a turbulence stretch of water known as the Cook Strait. It has been swam across and rode across, and thousands cross every day by ferry and plane. But only one man has ever tried to jump it. His name is Randy Cambell, and this ...

Funniest film I've seen for years!!
22 October 2007 | by tallen76See all my reviews

This film rocks!!!! It has everything from outrageous humour, blood and guts and everything else disgusting and it even has love story thrown in for you romantics out there. Not sure its really a date movie, well not unless your girlfriend is very cool with a wicked sense of humour anyway, though my sister and I LOVED IT!! I saw this film back in August in the UK and have been waiting for it to be shown again here as I cannot wait to see it again. The quick and witty the one liners will be popping up in your head for a very long time to come, making you laugh out loud at the most inopportune moments. The characters are well mixed and you can't help but like the good and secretly love the bad, I can't rate this film highly enough it is a definite MUST SEE movie. It may be short but it is most certainly SWEET!! And the sound track is pretty awesome too, what more can I say other than you would be mad to miss it!!
