Not to be compared to Hollywood movies...
18 October 2001 | by (Jokkmokk, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Everything is relative. This film may not be a million-dollar budget blockbuster, but it is still very funny. Former reviews say that you need to live in South Africa to understand the movie. I say that it not needed. I live in Sweden, and I still laughed until my stomach ached! However, this is not really a family movie. Younger kids may not understand the racism-related jokes...

I say that it's worth checking out. It's one and a half hour of cheap entertainment. Give it a shot. You might actually like it... =)
