A beautiful film.

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.

This was a hilarious movie. "I was trying to tell you it was like Lord of the Rings." Died.

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.

Another violent predictable "family" movie

Thank you! I read most of the comments before I started watching this and was not expecting the violence toward animals, the guns, and the gross factor. Nice to know I'm not the only one.

This film has haikus.
Also Sam Neill, dogs, and laughs.
Touching moments, too.

Taika Waititi never fails to make an enjoyable film.

A good, funny film with beautiful scenery and good acting. If there is one thing I didn't like was the "big" ending to the chase. I much preferred the "small" ending that happened later on.

I see it as a nod to the Mad Max films from NZ's neighbor to the west.

I absolutely adored this movie. So heartfelt and well-written.

It's been great to see this NZ gem being so well embraced across America. A really fun film and I recommend it for a good night in.

A bit drawn out but made up for it with a good cast, beautiful New Zealand backdrop, and decent soundtrack.

A great film by Taika Waititi, who's becoming very well known for his films. This one was a joy, and you never knew where it was going and where it would end up. It was surprising from beginning to end. Don't miss it -- it's a quirky treat!
