The Best Road Movie EverBy a customer from Leeds , 29 Nov 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]This quirky and dry look at antipodean life is streets ahead of any modern american effort: dry comedy, real and robust characters and wonderful vignettes of New Zealand's superb landscapes. I got this film out because I saw it twenty years ago and have remembered it since then.

A Little GemBy LeslieAustin (4 reviews) , 27 Mar 2013Perhaps you need to be a Mini enthusiast, or have a penchant for low-budget Antipodean fare, but if you fit into either of these groups then seek out a copy of this great wee film, you won't be disappointed.
Top Road Movie with Great SceneryBy HugoFoscolo (5 reviews) from London , 05 Dec 2008Anyone who's been to NZ or OZ will instantly relate to this film. The film has a certain 1970's innocence and charm and the characters are all very likeable. Your be willing them on all the way.
An NZ ClassicBy a customer from London , 17 Aug 2008I remember seeing this movie as a kid and loving it, it was the first time I had ever seen NZ 'at the movies' it was very exciting. Watching it again is very nostalgic and even though it is dated in parts, I think that adds to its charm - loving the holden!
A Blast From The Past!By a customer from Loughborough , 13 Jun 2008I last watched this little antipodean gem 25 years ago, and it has lost none of it's charm. Yes, it was probably made on a budget of around $50 but so what... If you like the kind of humour found in movies like Strictly Ballroom or The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert then this is well worth a punt. If in addition you're a fan of the classic Mini then this is one movie not to be missed-enjoy!
Goodbye Pork PieBy a customer from England , 07 May 2008Simply superb, a mixture of crazy Kiwi humour, and a Vanishing Point style road movie with more than a smattering of 70s kitsch and style
Class from start to finish, just gets better and better. some sublime touches such as how they earn their money and watch out for some terrific little one-liners.
I remember seeing this film years ago on BBC2 and had wanted to see it again for years, well I can honestly say the wait was more than worth it.
