Hunt for the Wilderpeople (***) is a pleasant walk through New Zealand

If they had kept the story with the two leads, it would be a fine film. Neill can do this role in his sleep, and Dennison is more engaging than most Disney kids. Unfortunately they go a little too often to the well of hijinks with House's welfare worker who acts as though she were Sheriff Buford T. Justice. This kind of humor works when one is 10, maybe, but it gets old quick here.
