Written by Duncan and Robert Sarkies, directed by Robert Sarkies. 101 minutes, R15 (offensive language, scenes that may offend). Showing at Reading Porirua, Light House Pauatahanui cinemas. Undie done: The limited minds of Nige and Deano (Bret McKenzie and Hamish Blake) offer limited appeal in Two Little Boys. You can never have too many friends, the old adage goes. But two friends proves to be one too many for Southland simpleton Nige (Brett McKenzie) in Robert Sarkies' wayward black comedy Two Little Boys. Nige has been best buds with Deano (Australian TV personality Hamish Blake) since childhood, when Deano saved him from a bully. Unfortunately for Nige, Deano is a sociopath, whose controlling influence on Nige's life has proved to be far more toxic than any schoolyard taunt or punch to the melon. And unfortunately for movie- goers, Deano's abrasive attitude, mean streak and dimwitted sense of humour overwhelms the picture to such an extent that any good- will and intrigue mustered by Nige's pluck and plight, is tem- pered by sheer fatigue. It's 1993 and the luckless Nige is out hooning the empty streets of Invercargill when he swerves to avoid a cat, and fatally runs down a Norwegian backpacker instead. Fearing he'll be done for man- slaughter, he calls on Deano to help dispose of the body. They then head to the Catlins with Nige's new flatmate, big-hearted Gav (Maaka Pohatu). Nige is preoccupied with guilt and winning back the heart of sometimes-girlfriend Monica, while Deano's disturbing obsession with being Nige's saviour and sole companion could spell bad news for Gav. It's Badlands meets Dumb and Dumber, but Badlands meets, well, anything actually funny would have made for a more satis- fying watch. The humour is too witless and profane -- there appears to have been a concerted effort to break the record for the number of F-words in a movie -- and the characters fail to engage. We feel sorry for Nige, but not much else. There are moments to adore in Two Little Boys, but the sum of its parts is as muddled as its tired Kiwiana soundtrack.
