very funny in parts
2 October 2010 | by jean-pierre-860-672482See all my reviews

Leon back to his old tricks and practical jokes if your ever watched any of the south African movies such as Mr bones, there's a Zulu on my Stoep, Poena is Koening then your in for a treat.

From trying to put makeup on not so dead - dead people, a traffic cop stopping you in a no stopping area, people who are fishing and cutting their fishing lines, a waiter that's just really bad at serving food to locking two guys in a "pet store" and the snake is out of the box your going to laugh your head off.

The taxi drivers are in for a treat, it's just catching unsuspecting people in every way.

South Africa has super people.
