About the Movie
A funny, fractured romance between two total misfits woven into an all consuming quest for revenge and shot through with the strange, sweet hilarity of the human condition. When Lily (Horsley), a lonely, oddball fast food waitress and hopeless romantic, and Jarrod (Clement), another lonely oddball and video game clerk who has spent the last decade plotting revenge against a bully from high school, connect at a dress as your favorite animal party, it's a match seemingly made in outcast Heaven. But when Lily decides to risk everything for love, her hopes are nearly dashed as, after a brief fling, Jarrod dumps her because he's too busy training for his all important payback mission. But neither of them can anticipate the grit the steadfastly optimistic Lily will show in her heartbreak. As Jarrod's day of reckoning arrives and everything hits the fan, Jarrod and Lily will find something that goes beyond romantic fantasies and revenge faith in who they are.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Eagle vs. Shark might have seemed amusingly original, albeit in a self-consciously quirky, indie-movie kind of way, if Napoleon Dynamite didn't already exist.
Rotten: The movie's idea of funny is giving the two lovers identical moles bordering their upper lips.
Fresh: Daft, sweet, awkward and amusingly rude.
Fresh: Yes, the nerdy loser thing has been done to death, but writer-director Taika Cohen brings surprising depth to this film...Napoleon Dynamite dreams of being this movie.
Awfully funny, especially if you appreciate something different to the mainstream nonsense dished up for us from the movie machine…. office & flight of concords style… keep up the good work!
this movie held my attention throughout its entirety. i laughed and i cried. it is absolutely amazing! i thought it was a british version of napoleon dynamite but with more substance. i am writing this with tears drying on my cheeks. please see this movie.
