Well, not so sure what the title refers to, other than the tattoo one character has on their buttocks.

No, wait, just checked an online reference. It’s a hat tip to a little-known film about a stuntman who tried to jump a mile-wide river between Canadia and the US of A. Which figures, considering the attempt to jump the Cook Strait. On a bicycle.

This is one of those films you’ll love to have a laugh at. Full of bogans, booze and boobs, it’s the kind of slapstick humour you’d always need to see on New Zealand screens. Irreverent, slightly crazy, and blokey as all hell.

But, just quietly wondering? Have the Back of the Y guys jumped the shark? Not so sure they haven’t. Where else do you go with stunt-based humour after this one?
