Typical Leon Schuster fun!
15 August 2005 | by richard-wheelerSee all my reviews

I always found Leon Schuster funny. It's interesting see that his other movies like, "Panic Mechanic" and " Oh Shucks! I'm Gatvol" which means "Oh Shucks! I've Had Enough" were not released overseas. It seems, the Leon Schuster film with Americans or British people visiting Sun City and they are in for fun and games, are released overseas.

I discovered this recently at IMDb when I typed in "Leon Schuster" and when the results came up, that was when I heard about Yankee Zulu/ There's A Zulu On My Stoep.And when I watched it, I couldn't help laughing! This movie's funniest bits were when Prince William decided to set a trap for this German guy in the middle of the bush with a tub full of flammable liquid. And when the guy sits in the tub because his backside got burnt, William drives his remote control car with a little trailer attached to it which contained a cigarette and matches. And when the German dude lights his cigarette, the tub explodes and he goes soaring through the sky. And the other was when the domestic servant wanted to make love to Schuster and when he took off, the servant said: "AWU!" which means " Oh dear!" Goodness gracious me! Schuster is such a joker!
