Great South African Classic
24 January 2005 | by sean_robrts56See all my reviews

For those North Americans interested in watching this movie please be aware that South Africa is not North America and therefore the humour is suited to a SOUTH African audience, so if you are offended by South African crudeness then this movie may not be for you. Typical of any Leon Schuster movie, there will be crudeness, some innuendos, and also some silly pranks. It does poke fun at the situation in apartheid era South Africa without any racist sentiment (for those who fear that it may contain some). For those interested in a true slapstick comedy who have an open mind then this movie's well worth a try. Along with Leon's others its a true South African classic.
