When I saw this film at the final, I genuinely thought it was going to win the whole shebang, and was pretty surprised when it didn't.
I don't want to give the Pigs Guts guys the whole "we've watched them grow up in the competition" thing yet again because they've probably heard it more than enough times already, but they've clearly been honing their skills over all these years and their films are as good as anyone's now. They've got a knack for cracking out some great lines, some really charismatic comedic actors and a genuine talent for bringing some excellent humour out of every day situations. The basic set-up here of a TradeMe seller and buyer trying to track down an errant second-hand couch was an extremely simple concept, but they were able to bring it to hilarious life just through the strength of the writing and the performances (and solid technical work). They understand the straight man / funny man concept intuitively and they're great joke writers.
I'd love to perhaps see them break away from the sort of "ordinary guys from a flat go on a quirky adventure" set-up next year, but that's only because I'm excited about what they might bring to say a zombie film, a war movie, or a Regency-era romance with their particular skillset and sensibilities, not because I'm bored of what they're doing.
Awesome work guys; will be crossing fingers that this ends up in the national finals.
