Two Little Boys
Available at Video Ezy now!
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 (Scarfies, Out 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...

A riotous tale that is incredibly entertaining and very tongue-in-cheek and I enjoyed every minute of it.Click to read full review.
National Radio (Graeme Tuckett)
A very, very dark comedy. Absolutely filthy-minded, laugh-out-loud funny.Click to read full review.
NZ Herald (Russell Baillie)
There's still something weirdly compelling about it, care of the performances (Blake's especially) and its portrait of mateship gone mad.Click to read full review.
Sunday Star-Times (Kate Mead)
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...Click to read full review.
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.Click to read full review.

A wee gem of Kiwi film-making on the big screen - and judging by the chuckles around the cinema, I wasn't alone in that sentiment.Click to read full review.
