This is a great movie, the first full length feature film to be directed by Peter Jackson - the director behind the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Not only did he direct it, he also starred in it as TWO of the major characters and funded much of the film with his own money. This film was made on a VERY low budget, which shows, but it's still a superb movie.
The plot revolves around a group of none-too-bright aliens who have landed on earth and are planning to sell the human race as fast food on their home planet. Earth's first line of defence against these evil extra terrestrials is "THE BOYS": Oz, Frank, Barry and thier klutzy leader Derek (Played by Peter Jackson himself).
"The one thing the aliens hadn't counted on was Derek...and Dereks don't run!"
The battle between The Boys and the aliens is very bloody and very funny. This film is very gory indeed and is not suitable for younger audiences, but the violence is more slapstick than anything else. If you have seen Peter Jackson's third movie "Braindead" (AKA "Dead Alive") then you will find this film has a very similar brand of humour.
This film is the ultimate in "Gross-out" humour and I suggest you see it if you have the opportunity. If you liked Braindead, BUY THIS VIDEO RIGHT NOW! I would also recommend this film to anyone who likes Zombie films.
