Very Funny Indeed, but misses something important
11 February 2001 | by (Gansbaai, South Africa) – See all my reviews

Leon Schuster is South Africa's leading comedian in my opinion, and you can understand why. His comedy isn't artificial, it's real. He catches people when they least suspect it, and he could catch you even without any disguise or make-up. Elmo de Witt's direction isn't anywhere to be seen though, as none of the movie is an act. How can there be a director?? Overall, You must be Joking is funny and realistic, but it shorts that special charm that a film needs to succeed.
