Sione's Wedding

Sione's Wedding

Sione's Wedding

From the Naked Samoans, national treasure & makers of  Bro'Town : a comedy set in Grey Lynn about four boys who’ve failed to age sensibly.

In the early '90s they were the Duckrockers, a break dancing crew, now the boys (Knightley – also co-writer, Magasiva, Lelisi, Ah Hi) are about to be smacked by age 30, and are still renowned for drunkenness, general tomfoolery and wrecking family events & weddings because of it. As one of their younger brothers’ wedding approaches, they are summoned by their minister (Lees) and told to find and bring along lady friends. Dating and maturity-finding hijinks ensue. Also look out for David Fane (the voice of the father in ‘bro Town & the funniest of the troupe), as an advice giving cousin.

sorry guys just didn't live up to the first one, wasn't at all funny, i just didn't think the writers really put in alot of effort into 'SW unfinished business'....everything just seemed forced, acting, jokes, one liners.... and how is it Sione dies in a movie thats about him but not about him?? and called Siones wedding???

An alright movie - but just alright. Enjoyed watching it and its great to see NZ and our people up there on the screen but I think this movie has been over-rated. It does have a few laughs but some quite obvious simple humour nothing too new or clever.... maybe the auckland traffic had put my mood in the darker regions or maybe, I not being polynesian did...

This is the feel good movie of the year! A movie which I can honestly say has something for everyone. A far better film than I ever expected it to be. As Aucklanders, you all have an obligation to and watch this movie at the theatre :) Wanganui has River Queen, South Auckland has No 2, and now Grey Lynn has Sione's Wedding! Duckrockers represent! ha!

IS IT JUST ME, OR AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO TOTALLY DISAGREES WITH EVERYONE HERE? THIS MOVIE WAS EXTREMELY INACCURATE IN IT'S PORTRAYAL OF PACIFIC ISLAND LIFESTYLES... IN ONE WORD - EXAGGERATED... IN TWO - TRY HARD... THE PERFORMANCES WERE LESS THAN DESIRABLE, AND THE STORY - LESS THAN SATISFYING... IT'S REDEMPTION? A WARM PI SOUNDTRACK and SOMEWHAT BEAUTIFUL...

My partner and I went to see Siones Wedding and found it the most hilarious movie we had seen in a very long time. My partner is Samoan and he could relate to nearly everything in the movie- even the church where Sione t married. The guys little group the 'Duckrockers' is also so close to how many guys behave that my partner felt he could justify the way...

This has to be one of the most funniest movies I've seen this year to date. It was a film well done. I'm a white girl from Glenfield, so it was nice to get a representation in the movie....who cares where you're from. This film is for everyone. You have t to see it. The film truly represents the humour I experience everyday working with PI people....and I...

But those are quibbles which don't detract from the success of something that is often-attempted but seldom achieved - a comedy with characters we care about...

The whole enterprise is so infectiously energetic, so drenched in joy and so bloody funny that to give it less than a top rating would be churlish...

It’s hard to see what all the fuss is about. A few rib-tickling moments and some nice chemistry between the leads, but pretty brainless...
