Eagle vs. Shark (Taika Cohen, 2007) — with Jermaine Clement
Eagle vs. Shark
IMDB - Rotten Tomatoes - HD Trailer at Apple.com

This movie comes out in June and features Jermaine Clement (of Flight of the Conchords and Outback Steakhouse commercials fame). It seems to be one of those sort of oddball comedies like You and Me and Everyone We Know or Amélie (or Napoleon Dynamite, if you must).

I have to say that if Jermaine Clement was involved, I wouldn't bother with this but he's hilarious. I hope this at least gets a somewhat wide release (beyond NYC and LA) so I can actually see it.

I saw the trailer for this the other day and it looks like it could be good.

It's playing at the Philadelphia Film Festival in April (linky).

Saw this last night and it was pretty good. Unfortunately quirky movies like these are going to be compared to Napoleon Dynamite and Little Miss Sunshine and for the most part, those are superior movies. That's not to take anything away from this one but it does seem a bit derivative. Still recommended for fans of the genre.

Edited to add: This seems terribly derivative now that I think about it.


Jarrod's Dad = Royal Tenenbaum
Jarrod's dead brother's fiancee = Chas Tenenbaum (Ben Stiller)
Hacker friend = Kip
Jarrod's daughter = Olive (from LMS)
Jarrod = Napoleon Dynamite

Don't get me wrong. It's still a nice movie but it's not terribly original. It does have some very funny sequences.
