This film was a fresh breath of Maori air. There are some scenes in this film that are so incredibly original and humorous. Only someone like Taiki Waititi could think of such elements. Bravo to New Zealand Cinema! What a triumph. I look forward to more from this crew.

Great feel good film and full of heart! Everyone who watches will never forget the name Ricky Baker. I still get that birthday song stuck in my head sometimes.

I have yet to watch a Taika Waititi movie I didn't like. This was funny, heartwarming, sad, and inspiring. Loved the characters, loved the actors. Happily recommending this to everyone now.

One of those quirky films that take you to unexpected places. Enjoyed every minute of it. And if you loved this film (or liked - love might be too strong), I'd suggest What We Do in the Shadows (same director).

Funny, delightful, surprising film. Likeable characters, and some funny "bad guys." It tickled me. Stay Maori, baby!

Excellent flick, very loveable cast. Ricky Baker is one of my favorite characters of all time now.

"Shit just got real! Back up, homies, and let go of my uncle!" - Ricky, brandishing a small rifle.

Hi, Maryel, I could be mistaken but I thought I saw your same comment on another movie, looked, but didn't find it. Excuse me, in any case. The movie was good and I enjoyed it. At any rate, we have encountered! Cheers. M
