I really wanted to love this movie but I could only enjoy it one time. After living in Australia and being a birder, I thought I couldn't lose renting this movie after watching the trailer. It is set in New Zealand and Rhys Darby does a great job of being a sensitive bloke who anyone would love, except his current girlfriend. He has alot of talent and was the main reason I watched the movie all the way to the end. But I can't say I would buy it or watch it a 2nd time.

As a Kiwi expat, I'm always on the lookout for Kiwi movies, most of which are lovely little gems. If you're a fan of Rhys Darby (hilarious and talented NZ comedian), you will no doubt enjoy this charming movie. Great ensemble cast (particularly the feathered kind) and Rhys Darby is in his element. A fun watch.

When I saw this trailer I knew this movie would be one I would thoroughly enjoy. As a professional Pet Sitter & Dog Walker (not to mention animal lover of all kinds) ~ I hunt out movies like this one, but this time I happen to stumble across it. I usually don't like romance movies that are overly sweet ... this one toed the line a bit, but the sweet bits with the duck won me over. I highly recommend this cute flick!
I must confess that one of the best parts is not only Sally Hawkins but the Queen song that all the actors & actresses sang to at the end - as the characters they played in the movie ~ Loved it!

Ever since I saw Ms Hawkins in "Happy Go Lucky" I have looked forward to any film with her. She has that rare ability to always be herself & yet have something new to show off her wonderful talents. I wish this film had been longer to develop more fully the ending ( especially since there would have been more of her to watch ) it's still a great romantic comedy. And of course, the most important thing is, the guy gets the girl in the end plus the girl is Sally Hawkins. Lucky bastard........

This offbeat right-of-passage story has everything: boy means duck, boy loses duck, boy gets duck back, then grows up; boy loses girl, boy gets better girl, all to the melodious offerings of Queen; quirky, touching, funny, kick-ass music. What more could you want?

I usually don't go out for romantic chick flicks, but, "Love Birds" is a real hoot! Set in far away exotic New Zealand this movie grabbed me from the first second. Yes, it's a boy is left by girl, boy finds duck, boy meets new girl, boy and new girl finally fall-in-love, romp. From Pierre the Duck (aptly played by Trey and Arnie the wonder fouls) to the "Shagg'n Wagon" this flick has it all: confused (almost dopey) leading man, a host of his funny mates, a cute (yet plausible) romance, loads of laughs, a quacky duck side-kick, and interesting glimpses of Auckland. And Freddie Mercury's and Gin's music sweep the screenplay off it's feet into stellar portents! (The music alone is worth a watch.) Darby and Smythe have real on-screen chemistry. This flick made me laugh and want to hangout down-under with a duck! It's a great date-night movie. If you like romances with a fun twists, and quirky kiwi humor (be sure to watch the closing credits where the cast gives new meaning to Queen's "We Are the Princes"!), then try out this fun flick.

With Rhys Darby and Sally Hawkins in a somewhat subdued romantic comedy/dramady taking place in Middle Earth, how can one lose?

Rhys Darby loses his love- she walks out, a wounded duck crashes in. He seeks help from a reluctant Sally Hawkins. Will love bloom and conquer all? Of course, enjoy the ride and the obligatory bumps in the romance and happy ending- well, perhaps, happy. Stay tuned.

We loved Sally Hawkins in Happy-Go-Lucky and, even more so, in the zany, romantic comedy, Happy Ever Afters. Here, she is much more reserved and cautious, but still charming, funny and vulnerable. Just don't expect the intensity of those other flicks. This is a gentler story with some silly duck antics filmed in a beautiful country with Queen music to pick it up now and then.

Nice change of pace.

Chalk another winner up by Rhys Darby and the New Zealand team. It's not going to win an Oscar for drama, comedy or writing, but it's a good decent love story to pass the night away with a loved one or just if you want a good laugh. I would definitely recommend to all but the harshest film critic looking for depth that is not needed for all films.
