Aroview: Kiwi icons - Dunedin, rugby, Flying Nun music, student life - upholster a formula but well-executed crime plot in which five student flatters discover a cannibas harvest in the basement of their dilapidated mansion.
When the flappable five find they have a serious hostage crisis on their hands, the comedy moves into a more sinister gear, but here it clocks up most of its entertainment points. Echoes of SHALLOW GRAVE aside, this takes a more down-to-earth approach to the moral dilemma, and the characters retain our sympathy in spite of some dubious choices. Awarded Best New Zealand film of 1999.
