Congrats on surviving the musical genre, it's a real challenge!
This film is a real mixed bag. On one hand, it had some of the best cinematography in the heat, and a decent musical number. On the other hand, the entrenched sexism and toxic masculinity on display was off putting in the extreme. My rating reflects this.
I've read the other reviews posted so far, so I know I'm not the first to point this out. I have also read the responses from the creators of the film, justifying the (so called) 'hot button topic' of "the use of Maori language and a "steryotypical boys night while roasting there friend who use to date the stripper." I found this to be a bit of a crock.
Obviously, kudos for opening a dialogue about your intent, and kudos for your matter of fact inclusion of Te Reo. Unfortunately, I think we can all agree that it was overshadowed by the way in which women in your story were presented. As others have said, they are put forward not as characters with agency in the story, but presented merely as objects of male desire and frustration. Let's be real, there's NOTHING hot-button about about a gross boys' night and sexually shaming a so-called friend. There's nothing new or interesting about it, so if you're reading this, filmmakers, and seriously want to push boundaries - please try making a film that isn't full of sexist tropes we've seen a thousand times before over the last hundred years of film history. The worst thing you could do here is double down and be defensive.
You have technical and storytelling skills for sure, and I hope you continue to develop them in future. My pitch to you is take the feedback from these reviews not as hate, but as people genuinely responding to your work.
