Workaholic Jaci will go to any lengths to protect the boutique advertising agency she works for from being bought and dismantled by a ruthless businessman known as 'The Jackal'. Hope exists in the form a huge contract for a prestigious wine farming family. But winning this contract won't be simple. Jaci needs to convince the farm owner that she lives up to his company's ideals of family values and commitment by proving that she is in a loving, long term relationship. Desperate to appear to be living the balanced life she has long discarded, Jaci decides to hire a model to pretend to be her fake fiancé for the day. At the pitch meeting the facade seems to have worked until the client insists her and her fake fiancé come away for the weekend to experience the wine farm before she pitches for the contract. Things start to get very complicated, very quickly for poor Jaci, especially since the man she has hired to be her stand-in-fiancé, is the very 'Jackal' himself who is trying to sink ...

South African comedy/romance comes of age!
19 February 2012 | by mark-296-183651See all my reviews

I thought it was just great....lots of fun, great wit, stunning scenery and a clear sign to me that the SA movie industry is moving forward at pace...congratulations!! it's a must see, don't forget the biltong, popcorn and Koeksisters !! Anel Alexander and Nico Panagio were just the biz, and for someone who can't speak Afrikaans - thanks for the sub-titles ; )

I thoroughly enjoyed the humour and capers, and the Vrede en Lust wine farm setting did more than add an important dimension to the movie, it was a great advertisement for the beauty of SA...reminds me that it's time for another tour of the wine lands !!

Finally, and perhaps most important, its' becoming clear that South Africans are more willing than ever to poke fun at themselves, a sure sign of maturity....long may that continue !
