However, the death of Bella means Hector now has to look after Ricky, and they didn't get along too well. Moreover, her death causes Child Services to decide to send Ricky back to the orphanage.

Ricky Baker does not believe that Uncle Hec's use of "majestical" is correct.
The word majestical was used by William Shakespeare and appears in Hamlet (Act 1,Scene 1) when Marcellus refers to the departing Ghost's monarchial appearance:
'Tis gone. We do it wrong, being so majestical, To offer it the show of violence, For it is, as the air, invulnerable, And our vain blows malicious mockery. See more »
In the final chase with the cop cars the audience see they are ford falcons. The New Zealand police force don't use Ford falcons in their police fleet. In fact they use Holden Commodores which is the rival to Holden in New Zealand. See more »
Want to see something fresh and original, heartwarming but also substantial - this movie is for you. Its director has such a unique tone, and his talent puts New Zealand on the world movie map all over again. Well worth your time, a positive movie, but in a deepest sense there is.
