Two Little Boys

Black comedy about Nige, his best mate Deano, and their inept efforts to cover up an accidental death after a hit and run. Stars Flight of the Conchords' Bret McKenzie and Hamish & Andy's Hamish Blake. Directed by Robert Sarkies (ScarfiesOut of the Blue), based on a novel written by his brother Duncan.

Nige (McKenzie) runs over and accidently kills a Scandinavian soccer star in an unfortunate incident involving a hot meat pie, a ginger cat and a policeman. He chucks the body in a nearby road-works hole and runs to his best mate of 15 years, Deano (Blake). But Deano's not the guy you should turn to in a crisis...

The title of the 1993-set kiwi bromance 'Two Little Boys' is a good indication of its level of humor, which is so juvenile and obvious the only period-appropriate thing missing is a laugh track.

Bad clothes, even worse hair and Suzie Clarkson's The New Zealand Fit Kit populate an early 1990s' Invercargill. The cringe-worthy comedy is amplified by Nige (Bret McKenzie) and Deano (Hamish Blake) - two bogans whose friendship is hanging by a thread...

There's still something weirdly compelling about it, care of the performances (Blake's especially) and its portrait of mateship gone mad.

A riotous tale that is incredibly entertaining and very tongue-in-cheek and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Classic Kiwi Humour

So. It's a black comedy, and it's a Kiwi film. It may seem like I'm stating the obvious, but these points really are the essence of the film, and what makes it so great! Actually, I think that black comedy *suits* Kiwi humour, but maybe that's just me. Both Bret and Hamish were hilarious - I liked the way they interacted together onscreen, bringing elements...

GREAT NEW ZEALAND FILM

i personally think it was better than boy. The characters were amazing (especially Gav), the era was spot on, the acting was great, it had the classic small scale dark humor new zealand charm, and so many laughs. If you didn't want Gav to die then you enjoyed this film

Loved every bit of it. It exceeded my expectations. Sort of different and weird, but that's the beauty of it. Loved the acting, the humor, the crazy story, the music, the beautiful landscape in some little town at the end of nowhere. I have to admit, Kiwis have some seriously good movies.

Dont take it too seriously ...

These reviewers expected a masterpiece. It's got the laughs. It's got the shock. And some good acting. Go into it for a laugh and you'll get one

I was so looking forward to this :( But if the only way to judge a comedy is on whether it gets laughs, well, at the screening I was at there was barely a sound over the popcorn crunching. It really was a mess. Neither one thing nor the other. The acting was ok, but with unlikeable characters and a shallow script it just made for a dull night out. Such as...

Robert Sarkies is a superb kiwi director, as both 'Scarfies' and 'Out Of The Blue' make clear. But, reviews being subjective, personal opinions, it pains me to say, Sarkies' latest offering left me cold. Starring 'Flight Of The Conchords' Brett McKenzie and Hamish Blake of 'Hamish & Andy,' you'd think two little boys would offer laughs a-plenty, but wild...
