The Devil Dared Me To

Comedy from the demented souls behind TV's Back Of The Y Masterpiece Television. Young Randy yearns to be NZ's greatest living stuntman, much to the chagrin of his aunt and uncle who understand that the petrol running in Randy's veins is bound to ignite one day. Can the love of a one-legged female Evil Knieval save Randy and break his descendants' long legacy of fiery and fatal confrontations with the grim reaper?

****ing AWEsome!

Hilarious celebration of quintesential KIWIness. I will need to see this film again to take in all the visual comedy as well as the script - cant praise it enough. Its going to be my source of "random laughing out loud" moments for quite a while I reckon. Brilliant, absolute genius. Thank goodness it got funding. More to come? hope so...

Not bad...

Worth seeing, only because it's more exuberant than most NZ films. Next to the tepid Eagle vs Shark, this one is brimming with energy. It may be a bit sickly sweet in parts with the love story, but the ridiculous (often lame) stunts are grin-inducing. I think this film sums up a NZ attitude better than anything I've ever seen at the cinema. It's not...

It's crude, rude and boorish. But fortunately its brand of tastelessness makes for the most big dumb fun to roll out of the Made-in-NZ film can in some time. Probably best enjoyed after (quite) a few drinks...

I found the film kind of tedious, self-satisfied, and nothing like as funny or clever as its creators seem to think it is...

Those who love a good portaloo gag, the sight of someone tongue-kissing a hideously disfigured burns victim or deadly slapstick will consider this the best 77 minutes of their life.

Likewise, fans of Heath and Stapp's anarchic TV show Back of the Y will lap up this extended edition, although it is probably closer to early Roger Corman or Peter Jackson than the boys' beloved Goodies or Goodbye Pork Pie...
