As likeable as the movie was, I just didn't find it as funny as I thought I would.

Romantic comedy about two lonely people who find each other while orbiting on the outer fringes of society reminded me of 'Napoleon Dynamite.'

A hit and miss little film with a forced sense of eccentricity that falls flat, but is otherwise saved by hilarious one-liners...

December 21, 2007
A paean film to lonely misfits that follows along the same tracks as "Napoleon Dynamite," and relies entirely on being a charmer.

Geek-love rom-com from New Zealand has bite.

The genius of this film is the way it keeps us laughing at the eccentricities while also challenging us to find a positive way to move forward with our lives.

If you're going to make fun of awkward chavs, even with the best will in the world, you have to avoid simply laughing at them.

From the seemingly helpless geriatric who gets up to push his own wheelchair to the genial brother who constantly mimics movie stars, however, Taika Cohen's film seems nothing so much as Little Britain Down Under.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

The film wants to be your cuddly, quirky friend, and makes you feel bad for not returning the affection.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
Tim Robey
Daily Telegraph (UK)
August 17, 2007
Lead couple Lily (Loren Horsley) and Jarrod (Jemaine Clement) are such unoriginal, checklist misfits that there's little about them to celebrate or even stomach.

Eagle vs Shark lays on the whimsy with a trowel, almost smothering the real talent of an endearing cast. Provincial New Zealand.

You don't have to be a schoolyard bully to find yourself longing to administer swift, vicious wedgies to the nerdish inhabitants of this kitsch Kiwi excursion.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Eagle vs Shark is a quirky New Zealand comedy which unravels with rather less off-beat joie de vivre than Napoleon Dynamite did.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
