Came A Hot Friday

Directed by Ian Mune (1984)

“The funniest, liveliest, most exuberant film ever made in New Zealand”. So said critic Nicholas Reid, a year after Came a Hot Friday became 1985’s biggest local hit. Though Billy T’s loony Mexican-Māori cowboy is beloved by fans, he is but one eccentric hero among many — as two scheming conmen hit town, and encounter bookies, boozers, country hicks, nasty crime Marshall Napier, and Prince Tui Teka playing saxophone. Until the arrival of The Piano in 1993, Ian Mune and Dean Parker’s award-loaded adaptation remained NZ’s third biggest local hit.
