South Africans will love it!!
21 March 2004 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

This movie is actually very funny...the only problem is that if you come from USA or some other place you will never understand the South African humour in it...so if you are from the US then dont watch it...you wont get it...but if you are from South Africa...youll love it...i really loved this movie...because i am South African, it shows alot of things that happen in south africa and it really made me laugh, so i definitely recommend it to any South African who hasnt already seen it...if there are any South Africans who havnt seen it... this movie has been bad mouthed by many Americans and people in other countries simply because they just dont get it... so South Africans...Go watch it!! of course there are those exceptions of people from other countries other than South Africa who have experienced South African life and who will enjoy it.
