I find myself singing the theme song on an almost daily basis -- to the point where it really is a good thing I like the song, or it might drive me insane! Even funnier is that the boyfriend often bursts out singing it, too, and he's only seen the movie once! It's that addictive a song! :!: :!: :!:


First: Boxer-briefs, most definately, are the preferred undergarment.

Secondly: I find that a lot of Bret and Jemaine's music has a knack of sticking in your head. I find myself singing The Bus Driver's Song all the time, in addition to Tongan Ninja. They are really well crafted songs that grab your attention and are so clever.


What is it with ladies and boxers? lol

ditto the Bret and jemaine music. very, very catchy and musical.

I always saw him in the tighty whities (in my mind during the song when he falls because his shoes are still on. OK?) :rolls:

Boxers, briefs, bikinis, whatever ... as long as they're clean!

I certainly agree that their music in general is catchy and sticks with you. I generally wake up singing either Bus Driver Song or Bret, You've Got It Going On. Tongan Ninja seems to be my grocery store song. :?

I had the Phones 4U ad song in my head for weeks. It was on heavy ad rotation on TV here in the UK a couple of years ago. It became a cult ad for students around the nation :lol: Alas, it became the cult song in my head :roll:

And to answer your Q about ladies and boxers....

I always think its because men don't have hips to speak of, and anything tight on them is not as pleasing to the eye, whereas boxers have the whole 'less is more' thing going on. But thats just me :lol:

My favorite line from BYGIGO is "Don't wanna see my little buddy wearing a frown." Also, "If one of us was a lady, and I was your man." Perfect.

From the TN theme my favorite line is "Because he was a Tongan and he was a Ninja, he adopted the name "The Tongan Ninja". Amazing grasp of the obvious there.

You know, it just occured to me that most of the characters have American (or Americanish) accents, but the film is set in New Zealand.

Hmmmmm....

maybe because they feel most 'mericans are too arrogant or untraveled to appreciate a movie with 'ferners' in it? and their accents are a nod to that.

they want to sell videos here post theater release.

I figured it had more to do with the fact that a lot of foreign/ninja-type films dubbed into English often had heavy American accents. I think they could have been playing off that idea. I saw one on tv a few months ago that wasn't supposed to be funny, but the way it had been dubbed was so bad and so cheesy that I burst out laughing. Sadly, it was a fairly recent film.
