Watch: Savage Honeymoon 1999 123movies, Full Movie Online – Savage Honeymoon is a well judged movie that pokes fun at certain aspects of New Zealand life, yet at the same time deals with some fundamental issues of family values.The Savages are not a perfect family, but then again, what family is? They do plenty of things wrong, provide some hilarious moments, and show us a little about what holds a family together when the chips are down. Applause to the director and cast for maintaining a good balance and not going overboard on the laughs, the violence, or the mushy stuff.I enjoyed this movie, but only hope that people don’t come away thinking all NZ families are like this..
Plot: Dean is threatening to firebomb his ex-girlfriend’s wedding. Mickey is filling the garage with stolen goods – again, and pierced teenage daughter, Leesa, is an accident waiting to happen on the family’s beloved Triumph motorbike. An unconventional tough family, battling to survive with humour and love, in a world of motor bikes, rock ‘n’ roll, classic cars and alcohol. This is a family that you probably would not want next door, but they are fun to watch, and they have their ways of holding family together.

Ask yourself: “Do we really need this film’s message?”
Our friends here in NZ recommended that we see this film. They said it was really funny. Blah.
The message is about low-life families who drink, smoke, create messes and hoon around everywhere. Oh sure, it is a ‘take-off’, a comedy showing the problems of such behaviour. The two other IMDB comments below are fine – I follow what is said below, and understand it. But just ask yourself if you really want to spend time looking at a bunch of hoons doing stupid things.
There IS talent in this film. The acting and script for example are good. I guess the producers figured a quality story (such as in The Piano) just would not sell. I do hope this does well at the box office, but then to me it would then not say much about us Kiwis and the standard of films made. I just wish that more money would have been spent on investing in a decent story rather than on smashing bottles and burning household items.
Kiwi Movies Don’t Get Much Better Than This!!
First of all big ups to the fine people who put together this little gem of kiwi cinema. This IS one of the best movies ever made by our fine country. The characters are all people we (as typical kiwis and maybe even a few aussies) can relate to. While it does have a few weak moments for the most part this film stands up. Elizabeth Hawthorne and Ian Mune are truly the glue that holds this little film together. Ms Hawthornes portrayal of Maisy is classic. First coming across as a drunken bitter old broad who seams to resent her family to revealing the real woman beneath as she falls for the owner of the holiday camp (Ian Mune) and never failing to have a drink or cigarette in hand (frequently both). Watch this movie. It’s worth it.
