After 20 years of marriage, Mickey and Louise have high hopes for their second honeymoon - till it's gatecrashed by their mother-in-law and two teenagers.
The Savages are a working class West Auckland family who like drinking, and living by their own rules. Savage Honeymoon is a celebration of their passion and leather pants - and a snapshot of a couple worried their children may not be as lucky as them.
The film introduces a (now infamous) vein of Kiwi characters – the Westies, West Aucklanders who are typified by black leathers, motorbikes, classic cars and hard partying.
Writer and director Mark Beesley has since gone onto direct the award-winning Outrageous Fortune, as well as The Almighty Johnsons, Legend of the Seeker and Nothing Trivial.
