Wimpie Koekemoer - the biggest geek in school. He is constantly embarrassed by his conservative mother and his strange father, especially in front of girls. Wimpie dreams of being popular. His dream could unexpectedly become a reality when the most popular girl in school, Katrien Swanepoel, is dumped by first team rugby centre Werner 'Killer' Botha. Katrien and her friends Liezl and Christie decide to give Werner a taste of his own medicine by planning to make Wimpie the new first team centre. It turns out rugby is a lot harder than Karien and Wimpie anticipated and Wimpie almost gives up. Fortunately his unexpected popularity leads to friendship with school rascals Japie and Fanie. The mischievous duo unknowingly convince Wimpie to keep playing rugby, even though they're much more interested in pajama parties with girls. Bakgat is finding yourself, despite high school.

Well where to begin, when I first watched this movie, I thought it would be a typical Afrikaans movie (Bad acting, no real or original story line) but was I surprised, it is really a great movie. The movie is in Afrikaans with English subs, but for those Afrikaans speaking people out the it's truly a great modern movie. It's a typical movie about a boy in high school who is always a outcast and is willing to do anything for the high school sweetheart. In this case it is playing rugby, unlike most movies where the underdog finds out he is great at a sport, this one the underdog actually has to train for it. And during this time he and the high school prom queen actually fall in love. It's a great romantic comedy that will have you laughing from the beginning and crying at the end.
