Oddball romance. Debut feature from New Zealand director Taika Cohen, about a couple of social misfits who manage to find love. Lily (Loren Horsley), an outcast at the fast food restaurant where she works, meets Jarrod (Jemaine Clement), a nerdy geek who works at a local games store. Realising they have a shared passion in video games, romance blossoms, ultimately leading the pair back to Jarrod's hometown, where, with Lily in tow, he plans revenge on his old high school bully.

I, personally, loved this film. Its sweet and awkward, and it warmed my heart. Like i say though, its hard to put a finger on, but you have to have a certain sense of Humor to really appreciate it. If it were a series it'd be along the lines of flight of the conchords/ The office. Theres no goofy, slap-dash 'running into lampost' moments, they leave it up to you to do the laughing, and i personally laughed a lot.
If you liked Napoleon Dymnamite, youll like this, If you enjoy Flight of the conchords, you'll enjoy this, If you Love quaint, cute and Maladjusted comdey, youll love this.

Quite simply the funniest film of recent times. Loren Horsley as Lily is a revelation. Tender, timid, wide-eyed, childlike, beautiful in so many ways... this is an astonishing and mesmerizing performance that ranks alongside that of Sally Hawkins as Poppy in Mike Leigh's masterwork Happy-Go-Lucky. It's frustrating that most female roles are so yawnsomely underwritten or resort to stock types. By contrast, Lily is an entirely original character with oodles of charm and heartrending vulnerability. My greatest frustration with the film is her incomprehensible infatuation with Jarrod. He is a manipulative, egomaniacal, deeply unattractive boor. Although Jemaine Clement portrays him well, the character is utterly unlikeable. Nevertheless, the film had me transfixed from the first to the last frame. I literally spent the entire duration either emitting hearty belly-laughs or grinning inanely. Oh, and in a film chock-full of great supporting players and interesting relationships, the most moving onscreen interaction of them all is that of Lily with her brother Damon. I can't think of many (any?) sibling relationships on film that express such unconditional, innocent love.

i'm careful when it comes to recommending low-key films cos to know too much about them usually equals missing the point but i really think this film needs to be seen by as many people as possible.i can't get this film out of my head and that's pretty rare,even more so being that it's a romantic comedy,one of the least favoured genres for being thought about post cinema.most reviews i've looked at since seeing the film make a big deal of two things,a)it's similarity to napoleon dynamite and b)the main characters being either unsympathetic or just plain pathetic.they're both justified but i think both work in the films favour.i love napoleon dynamite,yet it's an out and out comedy.where eagle vs shark has the edge is that it's not afraid to get a little dark at times.they're stylistically very similar yet at no point did i feel this film was ripping dynamite off.and b),to me makes the film that little more realistic cos upon first meeting them,the protagonists seem(though a little eccentric)straight-forward enough yet by the end of the film are anything but(this fact is even referenced by a comic line spoken by jared,the film's main protagonist,halfway through the film).i think that sums pretty much all of us out there up,doesn't it?!!this film isn't afraid to venture into grey areas yet doesn't make a big deal of it when it does.at times you'll want to either slap certain characters or go rescue them but at no point will you stop caring.loren horsely's performance alone is worth seeing the film for,at turns hilarious and heart-breaking(if you haven't fallen in love with her character lily by the end of the film,then you might wanna think about checking your pulse!)and the film features the best use of a stone roses tune i can imagine being put to film.Read more ›

Format: DVD
I investigated this film on the back of brilliant indie comedy Flight of the Conchords, the vehicle through which Jermaine Clement achieved mainstream fame. Having never seen him outside of his bizarrely symbiotic relationship with Bret Mckenzie, I was surprised to see Clement here: in a Dynamite-esqe film. While Clement gets most of the good one liners in this film, you may find yourself disliking him in the first portion of the film. Before the action moves wholesale to Jarrod's family home, he comes across as rather one dimensional next to the bottomless well of emotion that is Lily. His assertion "I'm just so deep" makes you want to answer "No, you're just an insensitive idiot".

However, this is a film of 2 halves, and when you meet Jarrod's family, you realise what lies behind his Dynamite style bravado. Lily's patience, emotion and soul cannot help but touch you from here on in, and you'll root for her all the way through. Probably as the film maker intended, the whole film eventually hangs on one line spoken by Jarrod near the end, and you'll either hate or love the film based on this. If you loved the Life Aquatic (the film this most closely resembles apart from Dynamite), then you'll probably like this. It kept me smiling all the way through, but also left me very sad in places. The animation sequences have been criticised in other reviews, but I found they made sense by the end.

This is a different comedy from the Conchords, a deep emotional one, and it certainly has depths where Dynamite had none. It's much heavier than Little Miss Sunshine and Eternal Sunshine. I'm only awarding 3 stars, as some aspects of the film are tacked on for no apparent reason, (a certain little girl, for example) and this is definitely not a film for everyone. I liked it, It's broken, but beautiful.
