The Devil Dared Me To

Film (Trailer and Excerpts) – 2007

R16
Restricted

Matt Heath and Chris Strapp dragged their characters from bogan TV series Back of the Y to the big screen for this movie, which follows Randy Cambell's rocket car driven mission to be "New Zealand’s greatest living stuntman". Gross and petrol-fuelled mayhem ensues, as Cambell romances a one-legged female Evil Knievel and fights a family curse. Scott Weinberg (Cinematical) praised this "cross between The Road Warrior, Mad Magazine and Jackass" as "loud, raucous and adorably stupid" when it premiered at US festival South by Southwest in 2007. 

It's like a cross between The Road Warrior, Mad Magazine and Jackass, basically, and the flick packs more chuckles into 75 minutes than Mr Sandler generally packs into five movies combined...
– Scott Weinberg on website Cinematical, 21 March 2007
