Waititi’s Eagle vs Shark is a love story between two shy and quirky individuals.  It seems to be written in the same tone as Clement’s Flight of the Conchords and Jared Hess’s Napolean Dynamite.  There are funny moments in the movie, but also some underwhelming sequences.  I enjoyed the addition of some small stop-motion animation sequences to this live action film.  This is not done often enough and I hope that filmmakers keep this in their arsenal.  Overall, the soundtrack was fitting and the movie made me laugh.
