A good insight into South African life - a terrible insight into the SA film industry
Lipstiek Dipstiek is not the worse movie ever made. It's just a pity that the entire (recent) South African film industry is content with producing films like this. Willie Esterhuizen (director) is no idiot. He's been responsible for the best sitcom SA television has ever seen (Orkney Snork Nie) - and in recent years he's written a load of garbage as well - but in this film he never really manages to exploit the stereotypes that make this comedy successful.
This is symptomatic of the whole SA film scene - comedy is simply made as entertainment for the masses; losing sight of the fact that comedy can have just as much (if not more) social comment, and indeed responsibility, as drama.
It's not a bad idea to watch this film though. It's highly entertaining, and a few exceptional performances can be seen. Esterhuizen understands comedy - the pace is right up there with the best.
Its just sad that the film didn't go all the way.
