Based on the Aramoana Massacre that occurred on 13 November and 14 November 1990. Resident David Gray, an unemployed gun collector, went on a rampage in which 13 people were shot dead, before Gray himself was shot by police.
An irreverent comedy about Nige, his best mate Deano and their riotous misadventures as they struggle with their imploding long-term friendship which is put under pressure by an unfortunate incident involving a hot meat pie, a ginger cat and the untimely death of a Scandinavian soccer star.Written by
The original title, 'Two Little Boys', was changed after the arrest and imprisonment of Australian television personality Rolf Harris for serial sexual offenses against children, as Harris's best known song has the same title. The film's producers were concerned about negative comparisons. See more »

I hadn't seen any promotional material or trailers for this film so went in not knowing what to expect. I was thinking it was going to be similar to Eagle vs Shark or Boy. However it turned out to be a very different film, perhaps similar to Boy in that it at first appears light hearted but quickly reveals more serious undertones. This film is far stranger than Boy however, and far more sinister. I don't think it was bad film, but I couldn't call it a good film either really. I wasn't disappointed walking out of the cinema but can't say I was entirely satisfied either. It's just a really strange film. I think casting two comedians in the lead roles possibly wasn't the best way to approach a film like this. More serious actors could possibly have changed the entire tone of the film. Maaka Pohatu was excellent however.
I would give it a 6.5 out of 10 but there's no halves, so I will go with a 7 simply because I like when films leave me a little uncertain.
