5.0 out of 5 stars Quality, 5 Nov 2010
This review is from: Boy (DVD)
So amusing. Totally kiwi. Saw it twice at the cinema, so good. Havent met anyone who didn't like it. I badly want to buy it, but £26! I'll wait till christmas!

Set in east cape, north island.. near raukokore in the 80's. Kid Michael jackson fan waits for his hero dad to get out of jail and take him away on adventures. His dad turns up.. the story begins.. wont ruin it

Silly, emotional, retro style (got to love the mikey j references).. such a good comedy. His dad (director of film too) is the highlight of the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant film! 10 stars if I could., 24 Aug 2011
This review is from: Boy (DVD)
I enjoyed the quirky Eagle vs Shark and watched this not realising it was the same director, but all the quirkiness is there again; this time even better! This was an absolute joy to watch; the acting by the two lead children is stunning. This is one film I'll be watching more than once. (More information can be found at IMDB)

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly observed account of one of life's transitions, 10 Nov 2014

This review is from: Boy (DVD)
I'd call this a drama with a lot of humour in it, rather than a straight-forward comedy, The main theme is the transition from the young child's view of their father being the best dad in the world to the more disillusioned view of a teenager. It also captured what it's like when a child loses their mother at a very young age well - speaking from unfortunate personal experience.

Brilliantly observed writing and the kids are superbly directed so it didn't feel like they were acting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boy, one of the best movies to come out of NZ, 24 April 2014

This review is from: Boy (DVD)
This is a fantastic movie that makes you feel good at the end of it. Even though it is light hearted it has some deep meaningful scenes. I have bought two copies of this so I can pass one on to others. You will never regret watching this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hysterical, 30 Oct 2013
This review is from: Boy (DVD)
Some of the one liners are absolutely brilliant. The kids dad is so so funny. Can't say enough about this film, watched it by accident and was hooked after 5 mins! Definite must watch if you're into comedies!

It was very difficult getting hold of a UK compatible version of this film. It is the most brilliant film about NZ culture, so funny
