If you were looking for a light-hearted comedy to distract you from the stresses of uni life, then look no further, because the Duckrockers from Sione’s Wedding have got you covered. Co-written alongside James Griffin, Sione’s Wedding is the 2006 cinematic work of the comedy group, Naked Samoans – Oscar Kightley, David Fane, Robbie Magasiva, and Iaheto Ah Hi (remember bro’Town? Yeah, they were also the masterminds of that).
With good ol’ Auckland Central as its backdrop the movie features your hilarious thirty-something best friends with the mental ages of 16. These guys are so renowned for causing madness at weddings and celebrations that their soon-to-be-married best friend bans them from his wedding. They are offered an ultimatum: find dates to the wedding – and not just any girl stupid enough to go for free food – but girlfriends or risk being abandoned. The Duckrockers then head out on their mission full of hilarious struggles, failed hook up attempts, and parties gone wrong.
This movie is so freakin’ funny, I can’t count how many times I’ve come back to it when I needed a mood-lifter. The whole movie is topped with hilarious skit after another displaying each of the boys’ struggles in finding a girlfriend. My favourite part was when one of the mates, meets with his party line hookup who doesn’t look what he expected:
“Latisha? You said you were a size 14!”
“Pfft, I am!”
“Aw, your feet may be!”
Free to watch on NZ On Demand, Sione’s Wedding is guaranteed to make you laugh your tits off.
