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.

11 December 2010 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

This is a BAD movie full of cheesy one liners, BAD sexual humor and extremely unoriginal. I can name a number of movies with the EXACT same plot but the one best suited is: She's all that. You know the guy makes a bet that he can turn the unattractive, weird and clumsy chick into the next big thing? This is that exact movie just this time it's a girl making the bet.

Again please don't waste your time on this, the acting is bad and very forced and the script seems like the work of a teen sex addict. Oh wait! that's the target audience...

Terrible and VERY unimaginative.
