Brendan and Gavin are lifelong friends who feel comfortable with fame and international adoration. Even though they haven't achieved it yet. They're just like any other small town guys - they enjoy playing in a band, reviewing book reviews and busting mad sickness whenever they can. They also have brand new jobs in advertising. Unfortunately their world falls apart after they lose their jobs, a day before their ten-year school reunion - a day they've dreamt about for, well, ten years. Written by Anon

Clever & Witty South African humor
13 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

This happens to be the only South African movie containing really clever and witty type of humor (unlike moronic Leon Shuster movies) - comic timing is perfect :-) Also, us South Africans are sick and tired of seeing blood, crime, and anything AIDS related - this has been shoved down our throats all the time, on the news, in the print media as well as with other SA movies. Straight outta Benoni is a real breath of fresh air!

You have to be south African to truly appreciate it. There is also a need for your brain cells to make contact at least once in a while - viewers who dislike the movie are simply too dumb to get it. WELL DONE BOYS :-) WE WANT MORE
