Mad Buddies Review
6 July 2012 | by (Johannesburg) – See all my reviews

Not the funniest of Leon's movies and we've been given better before. An original script nonetheless even the jokes and stunts are a first such as,"Listen buddy somewhere down there's a dead poacher,but you can have this for a starter." There's a silly government minister busy tearing himself apart while two enemies become friends through chaos.

It relise strongly on the success of past films of this unlikely South African comedy franchise not creating a new fan base.It will grab you on its familiar cast alone, however if you're a foreigner simply look forward to a good laugh done the South African style.Overall, it pushed the boundary and I liked it plus there's a hot model in there.
