I Loved This Movie!
4 December 2003 | by (Mount Vernon, Illinois) – See all my reviews

This movie is excellent. You really have to be from South Africa to appreciate it like I do. I had noticed the last person's comment made it sound like it was a terrible movie. It is a comedy and not slapstick right in your face comedy like a lot of the movies made by Hollywood are today. If you get the chance to see it, do so!
