Actor Oscar Kightley bears a remarkable resemblance to teenage actor Daniel "Harry Potter" Radcliffe, if Radcliffe were in his mid-30s, bald and Samoan. Uncanny.

Samoan Wedding is a rowdy, bawdy New Zealand comedy that perceptively depicts the universal with the particular in an amusing, affectionate way.

The all-Polynesian cast bring so much energy and glee to the telling that one can only smile and hope they all profit wildly from the American remake that's reportedly in the works.

The audience is left standing on the outside, almost as though watching a home movie: Clearly, this meant something to the people who made it, but it's hard to say what or why.

Infectious humour and a cracking pace make Sione's Wedding a cheerful, earthy and unpretentious movie with a big party spirit.
