Sione's Wedding is a feel-good comedy about four 30-something guys who must each find a girlfriend before their best friend Sione's wedding — or be left out in the cold. Through the efforts of these bumbling blokes to get the girls, the film brought to life the colour and humour of the urban Samoan community in Auckland, the world's largest Polynesian city. A breakthrough PI-Kiwi film, Sione's broke box office records when it opened in cinemas throughout New Zealand in March 2006. Actor Oscar Kightley co-wrote the script with James Griffin.
I was surprised by the degree to which the film just fell into people's hearts. Even years later, I'm meeting people who say they go home every night and watch it after work to cheer themselves up.– Oscar Kightley, in a 13 January 2011 interview with Bridget Jones
