Movie Info

This innocuous New Zealand-filmed "road" movie is buoyed by engaging performances and superb cinematography. The protagonists are young friends Gerry (Kelly Johnson) and Shirl (Claire Oberman) and their much-older travelling companion John (Tony Barry). The trio steals a car and hits the road. With the law on their trail, our heroes (and heroine) still manage to experience a steady flow of picaresque adventures. The huge supporting cast seems to be comprised of friends and relatives of the cast and crew, all of whom seem to be enjoying themselves. Luckily, their enthusiasm is contagious. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Goodbye Pork Pie

A very Kiwi film, I have no idea how people actually can enjoy this film because simply it doesn't have a valid plot, also the acting was pretty terrible. The characters are disturbingly obnoxious and dislikeable. I mean basically they are all liberal criminals. It shows the beauty of New Zealand scenery but not the people. There's really nothing good about this film.

A Kiwi classic. It's surprising that Wellington looked almost the same back then as it does now. The scene with the railway cars and the ferry is unforgettable.
