And now for something completely different...By PaulaWestwood (397 reviews) from Ashton-Under-Lyne , 26 Aug 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]A perfectly mis-matched (or perfectly matched) pair of oddballs gravitate to each other in this perfectly written and directed film from Taika Cohen.
This is very much in the Napoleon Dynamite vein, but then again totally separate and in its own realm of quirkyness. You know as soon as this opens it is not going to be a straightforward hour and a half, enter the fantastically awkward main characters and we are off. Loren Horsley is just fantastic beyond words as Lily, as is Jemaine Clement as her love interest, the Looser Jarrod.
It is a real personal sort of film, and in away I could understand people having difficulty with it, if so I would say watch it again, as for me the whole thing is just brilliant. One of those very special (odd, but special) moments where you find something totally on another plane, definately one of the best films I have seen in 2007.

Napoleon Dynamite Rip offBy BillyXRay (3 reviews) , 30 May 2013Napoleon Dynamite Rip off but, still enjoyable,but not great. Put it this way, i got to the end of the film.
Funny & heartwarming, a must watch esp for kiwi's or if you can relateBy KiwiMellie (1 review) , 24 May 2013I love this film, I am kiwi but i've been living in the UK for a long time, it's heartwarming, funny and original, definitely worth watching!! i've watched it lot's and enjoy it every time :)
Kiwi funnyBy Minkymoo11 (1 review) , 02 Apr 2013So funny. Even funnier if you know kiwi's or ever lived in NZ. Great humour. Like flight of the Concords its the kiwi's answer to The mighty boosh.
I loved this.By WolvesAbi (12 reviews) , 12 Mar 2013It's not often that I watch a film more than once, but this I felt compelled to. The two characters are of polar opposites but oh so similar and they are played superbly. There are some really awkward moments which made me squirm in my chair and made the film so much more quirky. It's brilliantly funny and sweet, aslong as you can appreciate that it's not your usual romantic comedy.
Kiwi Napoleon DynamiteBy a customer , 28 Feb 2013Basically Napoleon Dynamite transferred to New Zealand. Sweet, quirky, gentle humour, lovely acting especially female lead and it has the feel good factor, but not original.
