Came A Hot Friday


NZ comedy classic with genius Billy T. James, directed by Ian Mune.... More

1949 New Zealand. Wes (Bland) and his sidekick Cyril (Gordon) are conmen scamming small-town bookies. They arrive in Tainui and get to work with the help of gullible local, Don (Lawrence). They make some money, more by luck than good judgement, but when Wes wins a large amount gambling at the villainous Sel Bishop's (Napier) illicit casino, Sel avoids paying up. Wes and company join forces with the bizarre 'Mexican' bandit, the Tainui Kid (James), and set out to get the deserved winnings.Hide

  • It strives to be nothing more than it set out to be, and achieves this with a good-humored sense of almost laughing at itself. Full Review
