Personal Quote:

[on messages in his films - or the lack thereof] It's just slapstick comedy, with no message. I've been making comedies most of my life, and I've never put a message in - it's bad for business. It's arrogant to put messages in. You rob your audiences of putting in their own messages.

Trivia:

Brother of Jok Uys. See more »
