I have been working as a film journalist since 2010, dividing the first four years between radio broadcasting and entertainment writing in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. In 2014, I entered Fresh Fiction (FreshFiction.tv) as the features editor. The following year, I stepped into the film critic position at the Denton Record-Chronicle, a daily North Texas print publication. My time is dedicated to writing theatrical film reviews, at-home entertainment columns, and conducting interviews with on-screen talent and filmmakers, as well as hosting a podcast devoted to genre filmmaking (called My Bloody Podcast). I've been married for seven happy years, and I have one son who is all about dinosaurs just like his dad.

I think it’s safe to say many of us know people much like the characters depicted in DEANO AND NIGE’S BEST LAST DAY EVER. You know, those two guys who create havoc, know how to party and make every situation fun. The friendship that blossoms between Deano (Hamish Blake) and Nige (Bret McKenzie) rings very true to anyone who has gone on a rebellious streak. The duo’s alliance in the film becomes a full-blown bromance that could even get the ladies jealous.
Deano and Nige are the kind of friends who can depend on each other, even when times get heavy and imperative. In this case, especially when one friend accidentally runs over and kills an innocent hitchhiker. Hey, it happens. So when Nige finds himself caught in this messy situation, he has only person he can turn to: Deano. However, the only issue is, Deano is not exactly the most reliable dude in the brosphere. From there, hilarity ensues.
In honor of the film’s DVD and VOD release today, Fresh Fiction has an exclusive clip from the film, titled “History of Friendship.” The clip gives audiences a taste of the film’s tone and comedy, which is sure to tickle your fancy.
