Casper de Vries,
I first saw this movie when it came out in 2004 and thought it was very funny. Then I realised it was funny to only a certain extent. I also discovered early on how tight the budget for this film was. If you're a huge fan of Shuster, then by all means watch this film over and over again. If your not, watch it once, then return it. Trust me, if you watch it twice the Term, 'Bad Movie' is redifined. Go to your local DVD store today and check out this film but return it as soon as the film is over. Watching it once will give you enough laughs, but twice kills the whole thing as the jokes already feel old and boring. If you do not like this Shuster movie then try and find Panic Mechanic, which has twice the laughs and a much better storyline.
Overall I can conclude saying Leon Shuster is an excellent prankster but sometimes goes overboard. Like i said, go see this movie if you are South African.
