Mama Jack
9 February 2006 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

As an old Leon Schuster fan I couldn't wait the other day to go and get the DVD to watch at home. My personal opinion is that I find the movie Mama Jack absolutely brilliant like all previous movies of Leon Schuster, Iv'e watched it twice in one day and will watch it again. I hope there is still many to come over the next few years because no one compete against Schuster. People that say this is only a good movie due to that nice actress must go back and watch the whole movie. She is very nice indeed and plays a good role, but without Schuster it just wouldn't be the same. I'm 25 years of age now and can still remember nagging my dad as a youngster to take me to the cinema as soon as there's a movie of Schuster. Special thanks to Leon for being a great comedian in South Africa.

Regards
