Movie Info

Billy (Andrew Paterson), a farmer's son in 1970s New Zealand, would rather play dress-up than rugby. His effeminate nature earns him more than his share of teasing by his classmates, especially when his tomboy cousin (Harriet Beattie) is not around to protect him. When a new boy (Jay Collins) arrives at school, Billy alternates between soliticing his friendship and bullying him.

Critic Reviews for 50 Ways of Saying Fabulous

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (7)

  • The movie's insistently playful tone and cheesy fantasy sequences ultimately work against its ambitions, undermining a story that seethes with abuse and sexual obsession.

    June 24, 2006 | Rating: 2/5
  • Young lead Andrew Paterson is so likeable that the film occasionally threatens to be affecting, but a series of strenuously melodramatic developments late in the game kept us detached and unimpressed.
