Things I Love Today: Eagle vs. Shark

Things I Love Today: Eagle vs. Shark

Rob and I loved this quirky New Zealand film! Eagle vs. Shark starts on the bizarre side; very Napoleon Dynamite.

But towards the end it turns absolutely lovely. A great message about the perfection of loving someone who isn’t perfect. Watch the trailer here.

Flight of the Conchord fans will recognize Jemaine as the main character. Also fantastic: the adorable little girl, the animated scenes and the New Zealand accent (We couldn’t stop saying “tent” – pronounced tint – all night).

    The New Zealand accent is really kind of weird – we met a girl from NZ on holiday in Greece and she told us she would be travelling from Rome to Venus. We were momentarily nonplussed, until we realized she meant Venice!! Patricia

    I saw this last summer in DC with Jilly. I loved it, except I couldn’t love the dude, I kept expecting him to change and then he beats up someone in a wheelchair. But it was really cute and I love their accents!

    Yay for Eagle vs. Shark! I hate to nit-pick, but it’s Jemaine. I only know that because I’m obsessed. 😉

    Yes! I loved this too! My fiance thought it was a little TOO bizarre but I really dug it.
