A great comedy by the genius Leon Schuster
29 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This movie is absolutely awesome. Firstly, you don't need to be South African to enjoy this film as almost all of the dialogue is in English. Secondly, this movie is filled with jokes right from the word go. Sweet (Leon Schuster) plays hilarious jokes on his colleague Weedle and even though this movie is a comedy, the storyline is not half bad and really shows you want South Africa is about; the passion for rugby, fun in the sun and also everyone coming together as one in the great place known as The Rainbow Nation. This is truly one of Leon Schusters best movies. This movie is also one of Alfred's first movies and he is so cute in here. I would definitely recommend anyone to watch this film and i guarantee that you will laugh your socks off.
