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.

This is such a fantastic movie. Clever, funny, great storyline, and on the whole, wholesome. If only more films were like this.

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

What a great, but funny movie it was! I wish I had that much fun with some of my other relatives. Ricky and his uncle were on the run from the authorities, but had fun doing it.

Best movie I've seen in a long time.

Loved it! Funny, beautiful, quirky... I particularly liked when the kid showed up in the end with only his top 2 buttons buttoned and Uncle told him a haiku.

This movie has a heart, but isn't soppy. It's also hilarious. There is violence. It isn't gratuitous, but it is jarring (like violence ought to be).

What a great movie. The kid was great in Deadpool2 as well.

Slow at first, but very sweet and the pay off is so worth it. I thought I wouldn't be able to get over the New Zealand accents, but once I got into it Hick/Hec didn't bother me.

Loved it! Had to pause at the scene where Ricky is talking over to the Child Welfare woman over the ravine because I was laughing so much!

Her: I'm relentless. I'm like the Terminator
Him: I'm more like Terminator than you!
Her: I said it first - you're more like Sarah ...Read more

Quirky and fun, great acting in beautiful vistas. Thought and heart-provoking, and I agree, majestical! One of my two favorites so far.
