Director: Taika Waititi.

Starring: Sam Neill, Julian Dennison, Rima Te Wiata. New Zealand 2016. 101 mins.




Teenager Rick (Dennison), an overweight hip-hop fan, finds himself living in the latest of several foster homes, where the kindly Bella (Wiata) and gruff backwoodsman Hector (Neill) do their best to accommodate (i.e. put up with) him. Then Bella abruptly disappears, and social services threaten to move Rick on. Having none of it, Rick runs away into the bush, followed by the somewhat reluctant Hector. Their ensuing adventures as they outwit an increasingly intense search for them prove both ingenious and hilarious.



Kiwi writer-director Taika Waititi has strong form in offbeat comedy following 2014’s vampire mockumentary What We Do In The Shadows, and Dennison and Neill are excellent conduits for his quietly absurdist humour. The result is one of the unlikeliest buddy movies since Planes, Trains And Automobiles.



Contains moderate bad language, innuendo and infrequent bloody moments.
