Storyline

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.

This is a fresh teen comedy in Afrikaans a very good storyline with Ivan Botha,Cherie Vander merwe,Lelia Etsabeth en Will Roberts. The story is about a teenage geek who is very unpopular.The most popular girl in school state's that she can make that geek the most popular rugby player in school with very funny results. Tthis is the typical girl doesn't like boy but falls for him anyway nothing new but still very good if you want to see all the gags especially the sex therapy class sequences you better watch this asap. The movie does have English subtitles so really anyone can watch it. This movie also have a second and a third installment that follow up on this one so make sure you watch this one 1st
