He’s nursing a decade-long grudge against someone who teased him in high school; she’s just out of a job. She goes home with him to a seacoast town where he intends to have it out with his nemesis; she meets his father, his daughter from a one-night stand, and other family members – and there’s the memory of his talented (and dead) brother. Jerrod treats Lily badly, invents a relationship with a women he had a crush on years before, and gears up for his fight. Will she finally have enough and go home?
Plot: Love blossoms for Lily over double Meaty Boy burgers at mid-day when uber-computer nerd Jarrod comes in and leaves with free extra large fries. After gatecrashing Jarrod’s party and proving her skills on the game console, Lily goes down to Jarrod’s home town with him so he can settle an old score with a past school bully.

You decide.
Eagle vs. Shark is not another “inspired-by” high school athletic epic but rather a romantic comedy as strange as you will find this year. Actually I had to go back to 1971 with John Cassavetes’ Minnie and Moskowitz and Hal Ashby’s Harold and Maude to find equivalently eccentric couples meeting the challenges of decidedly unromantic love. Lily (Loren Horsley) is the naïve victim of society’s meanness (she loses a job at Meaty Burger, where most of us wouldn’t even eat, much less work; Jerrod (Jemaine Clement) is a slacker clerk out of Napoleon Dynamite’s class.

This New-Zealand funky romance is partly funded by a fellowship from Sundance, not a guarantee of quality but a sign there might be something more that the initial impression that director Taika Waititi is being condescending to these less than brilliant lovers. After a while, I lost my own condescension and warmed to the simplicity of Lily’s love for the obtuse and dorky Jerrod, as well as Jerrod’s struggle with his feelings for this lovable flake. I also found comfort as I placed the protagonists in the same lineup with eccentric characters out of the imaginations of Bill Forsythe and David Lynch.

For example, the socially-clumsy Jarrod asks the introverted Lily if she’d like to have sex; she immediately replies, “Yep.” The fleeting act, in which it takes longer to affix the condom than to perform, is charmingly innocent and inept.

Most of the family members are either socially unprepared or physically handicapped, a metaphor for the difficulties of social integration for unsophisticated but good-hearted underachievers. The oddball spirit of the film is embodied in the animal-costume party, for which Jarrod hosts as an eagle and Lily arrives as a shark. Thus the title, the endearing characters, and the difficulty deciding if this is an understated farce about the fringes of society or an exaltation of diversity and simplicity. You decide.

“I was going to come as a shark but I realized an eagle was slightly better.”
“Eagle Vs Shark” is the story of two people considered ‘losers’ by society and how they might…just might…be right for one another. On one hand you have Jerrod, a twelve-year old boy trapped in a man’s body who enjoys making candles, plotting revenge on the school bully that ruined his life and playing the video game ‘Fight Man’. On the other hand, you have the fragile Lilly who sings songs about tangerines, lets people walk all over her and dreams about how Jerrod (a regular customer at the fast food restaurant where she works) may one day love her.

Creating a quirky, whimsical movie featuring two geeks who are awkward and barely able to function in society is difficult to pull off but New Zealand film maker Taika Watiti manages it. What makes this movie different to many others which focus on similar characters is that “Eagle Vs Shark” never stoops to mocking its characters despite the opportunity to do so. The audience is invited to share in their hopes and defeats, rather than stand back and laugh at their offbeat behaviour. It is a romantic comedy about two characters who are ill-suited to the genre (Lilly wears her shark costume while lying in bed with Jerrod for example).

Whilst both leads are magnificent, Loren Horsley is the real find here. With her wide innocent eyes, crooked smile and shy demeanour, she creates a character which you can truly connect with. Jerrod may be a complete jerk and oblivious to everyone around him but you never doubt that Lilly truly loves him. She’s the type of girl who fades into the background of any room and Horsley manages to convey her joy and heartbreak in a way that you really want her to have a happy ending. Jermaine Clement as Jerrod is a lot harder to warm to because of his actions (and inactions) throughout the movie but ultimately you come to share Lilly’s faith that the two are right for one another.

It’s hard to avoid the comparisons to “Napoleon Dynamite” when reviewing “Eagle VS Shark”. The deadpan deliveries of the characters in both movies is similar and the tone is almost identical. It’s safe to assume that if you hated “Napoleon Dynamite” then you’re absolutely going to loathe “Eagle VS Shark”. Everyone else should give this movie a chance. Like the characters it features, it’s not perfect but, like love, it’s an uplifting experience.

Awkward. Quirky. Wonderful.
