Fans of cult hit NAPOLEON DYNAMITE will find much to like in this quirky New Zealand import. Director Taika Waititi's debut feature centres on the oddest of couples: Lily (Loren Horsley), an outcast at the fast food restaurant where she works, and Jarrod (Jermaine Clement, FLIGHT OF THE CONCORDS), a clerk at a video game store who is completely oblivious to his dork status

. Lily's days revolve around Jarrod's daily burger-driven appearances at her job, but, alas, he only has eyes for her perky blonde coworker. But Lily wins his heart with her video game prowess, and the pair becomes a couple. However, Jarrod has more than romance on his mind, and he journeys back to his hometown to face a high school nemesis with loyal Lily in tow. Though Jarrod provides much of the film's humour, Lily provides its heart. Horsley's resume doesn't feature a large number of credits, but she is wonderful as Lily. She's awkward and honest, sweet and completely smitten with Jarrod. As Jarrod, Clement has perfected the deadpan delivery that made NAPOLEON DYNAMITE so much fun. As in its predecessor, EAGLE VS. SHARK features characters that aren't aware that they aren't 'normal'. From Jarrod's mullets to his family's beloved track suits, they're a study in strange, but they are genuine and real people. Like other odd romances such as HAROLD AND MAUDE, this love seems unlikely, but good acting and smart writing make it work.

this is such a weird film... but has some hillarious moments in it.
#2
Hated this film with a passion.

Really, really hated it.
#3
Loved this film!

Best film I saw this year (I'm aware it came out earlier, only caught it this year).

Absolutely fantastic. If you enjoyed it - [URL="www.btsoth.co.uk"]www.btsoth.co.uk[/URL] is also worth a look!
#4
A little slow, but it definately has it's moments. Humour can be very subtle, and a lot will probably miss it. Def worth a watch though.
#5
I liked this film, but i didn't pay for it which made it better. Is a bit quirky but worth a watch and at this price it's about the same as renting it
#6
worth watching i say if you are a fan of Flight of the Conchords.

If you love films, and want to watch a good film, then DONT WATCH THIS!

This film was given to my gf as a present - we're now certain this friend doest like us!

What a waste of a couple of hours. Full of Australians who cant act.

No real storyline, its one of thse films you're forever waiting for it to get better... then it ends.

In fact my gf binned it straight after.

Film Rating = -100000000000000000/10 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*Kiwis you noob. By the way, I was expecting it to be terrible and it was OK... so long as you don't go in with any sort of expectations it's a pretty unique film and you'll probably enjoy at least a bit of it. Storyline doesn't really make sense though.

no expectations? We all expect to enjoy a film. thats the only excpectation we had. The friend said it was different.

Glad we didnt pay to watch that film. would be a waste of time to watch even if it was free.

Please, everyone, if you take one piece of advice this week take my advice...do not buy this film. Trust me. I love films, i love all varieties of films.

Put it this way, if you like either action, adventure, crime, comedy, thriller, drama, suspence, historical, musicals, war, westerns or sci-fi films, then you wont like this film.

Trust me, but if you dont, then at least give me a bit of rep once youve watched the film... if I was right.

I fully expected this to be reasonably enjoyable and hated it...a kitten's fart of a film. Jermaine's new film "Gentlemen Broncos" looks very funny, though.

Real marmite of a film this it seems.

Me? I thought it was pretty good. Good price,
