Many people have compared Eagle to Napoleon Dynamite, but I find the comparison lacking. Yes, Lily and Jarrod are geeks, but the similarities with Napoleon end there. This isn't a geek revenge movie though the plot may seem like that on the face of it. The movie is titled Eagle vs. Shark but it could be titled man vs. woman. Neither Lily or Jarrod run to each other as solace from the outside world. Lily has a warm home life with her brother and Jarrod is pretty solidly convinced of his stature and his ability with women until the end of the movie. It's interesting to see how Lily turns Jarod around. This film is about the balance of power between Lily and Jarod, not geeks vs the world.
There are a lot of good minor characters in this film including Jarrod's sister and her husband and Lily's brother. Jarrod's daughter is played brilliantly by an eccentric little girl whose name I can't find on the DVD. She's cute to watch. I liked Lorena's performance. She brings strength to her role as Lily but doesn't come off aggressive.Read more ›
I had to laugh when I read another reviewer write, "I could have done without the scene where the protagonist beats a wheelchair-bound rival with nunchuk sticks."
It's the type of movie that you have to watch more than once. The first time you watch this movie you'll get caught up in the plot, and the second time you'll catch the subtle humor that you missed the first time.
Everyone seems to compare this film to ND, but, in my opinion, this movie is much better all around. If you like FOTC type humor (deadpan) you will probably like this film. Plus, it has a great soundtrack. Worst case, you can take a break from watching Will Ferrel, Steve Carell, Ben Stiller, and similar comedians for a few hours and try something new. Who knows, you might like it!
The film follows Jarrod (Clement) and Lily's (Horsley) budding romance, from her crush on him as she works at a fast food restaurant he frequents, to their hook-up at a dress-as-your-favorite animal party, to visiting his hometown as he takes revenge on someone who bullied him in school. They are unlikely soul mates, bonded by similar facial moles.
The film includes beautiful shots of the New Zealand coast, a little stop-action animation, and Clement sporting a really choice mullet! Like a lot of stuff that has been coming out of New Zealand lately, it is heavy on the quirk but also has some funny and heartfelt moments. And fans of Clement will enjoy a scene in which he is wearing a Speedo.
You WILL call all of your enemies "foolish, foolish sucka" after seeing this movie!
