Movie Info

When Nige (McKenzie) accidentally runs over and kills an innocent hitchhiker, he only has one person he can turn to his former best friend, Deano (Blake). Problem is, Deano is the last person in the world who you would want to rely on in a crisis. As the old saying goes -- Nothing comes between friends like a dead body.

Critic Reviews for Deano And Nige's Best Last Day Ever

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

  • This is a weak film but an endearing one, a would-be black comedy undermined by the amiability of all concerned.

  • Limp comedy.

  • This is no ordinary buddy movie. It is, actually, an anti buddy movie, and while there are some sequences which could have been funnier, the story maintains a kind of bizarre logic which somehow speaks New Zealand.

  • Having earlier scored a breakout hit with his next-to-no-budget Scarfies (1999), a film that explored the lives of similarly low-brow characters but with far greater depth and narrative strength, more can rightfully be expected of the director.

  • With a backdrop of natural wonders and a suitably ironic deployment of familiar Kiwi pop hits, Two Little Boys strikes a fair balance between the outlandish and the recognisable.

  • The combination is a little like mixing chocolate, beetroot and anchovies. Maybe they're not meant to be put together. Despite all this, the film works.... Almost.

Audience Reviews for Deano And Nige's Best Last Day Ever

  • Jul 02, 2019
    Bizarre characters and an odd storyline might frustrate some viewers, but I thought this was quite good. Funny and simple at times, it's the casting that work for the film. Dark and full of black comedy that is tough to engage with, it is one hybrid genre that is very tough to combine. It's weird and offers some genuine humour in the latter third. The film fell into obscurity and may have been too weird for the target audience. 24/06/2019
