Awesome, refreshing to see polynesian people and especially samoan actors and actresses doing their thing. My kids when do not speak samoan know the man name Tofiga. They could not stop laughing through the movie. I dont except a lot of people to understand this type of comedy. As David Tua put it O for Owesome lol. Faafetai lava.
