It’s a feast of laughter in Sione’s Wedding (2006)
Sione’s Wedding (or Samoan Wedding) is a 2006 comedy that centres around four Samoan friends; Michael (Robbie Magasiva), Sefa (Shimpal Lelisi), Albert (Oscar Knightly) and Stanley (Iaheto Ah Hi) living in Auckland, New Zealand.
Now, I know you are probably asking ‘who the hell is Sione?’ well let me explain. Sione, as the title suggests, is getting married.
He is Michael’s smaller bother, played by Magasiva’s real younger sibling Pua, and the only one of their group who has actually grown up and planning a life of his own.
The boys, err men, although older are more delinquents and don’t know how to keep a steady relationship.
Michael is a ladies man and will sleep with anything that wears a skirt. For Sefa, life is one big party and Albert is the good boy. Stan is just weird.
Anyway, after destroying a number of wedding celebrations, their pastor bans them from attending their boy’s (Sione) wedding for fear of what might happen. Sucks aye? Fortunately, Albert comes up with a brilliant idea of getting girlfriends so they will be too busy to mess things up.
Brilliant? Yes. Great idea? Not so fast. None of the ladies who fool around with Michael are not willing to go to the wedding as his girlfriend (a number of them are married), Sefa’s partying ways has just pissed his girlfriend off, Albert…he doesn’t know how to talk to girls and Stan has an imaginary girlfriend.
Will these Samoan men find girlfriends in time to attend Sione’s wedding? Well, you can only find out by watching the film which is currently available on DVD and Blu-ray.
The gags are outrageous as we follow these friends in their quest to get girlfriends and eventually falling in love.
Sione’s Wedding or Samoan Wedding is feast of laughter, beautiful women, large men and will put you through a crash course about Samoan humor (if you haven’t seen Laughing Samoans yet).
