I was so pleasantly surprised by this movie! First of all, long time Flight of the Conchords fan. And Jemaine has pretty gracefully made the jump into actual movie acting, so I already had pretty high expectations. The movie is very funny if you like faux-documentary styles, and let me tell you: Katie and I STILL watch The Office a lot (both British and American), so that’s us all over. The movie also manages to be a little scary, though! That’s the best part! When the guys are being chased through the house, the werewolf scenes, the dance at the end. They’re pretty good! Anyway, wholly recommended. It’s funny, it’s quiet, it’s easy to watch. A real win/win.
