Love Birds

Film (Trailer, Excerpts, and Extras) – 2011

PG
Parental Guidance

Director Paul Murphy follows Second Hand Wedding with a romance featuring comedian Rhys Darby, songs by Queen and ... a duck. Darby plays heartbroken nice guy Doug: after a close encounter with a native duck (a paradise shelduck) with emotional problems, he enlists expert help from a sassy animal specialist (played by Brit Sally Hawkins, a Golden Globe-winner for feature Happy-Go-Lucky). True to rom-com form, love ensues ... eventually. NZ Herald reviewer Russell Baillie called Love Birds “an endearingly funny, if sugar-coated local romantic comedy”.

You’re just some bloke who’s too scared to fly, with a duck that can’t.
– Holly (Sally Hawkins) to Doug (Rhys Darby)
