As Spud Milton continues his awkward stagger through adolescence, he learns one of life's most important lessons: When dealing with women and cretins, nothing is ever quite as it seems. "I'm practically a man in most areas," writes Spud confidently on his sixteenth birthday. The year is 1992 and, in South Africa, radical change is in the air. The country may be on the bumpy road to an uncertain future, but Spud Milton is hoping for a smooth ride as he returns to boarding school as a senior. Instead, he discovers that his vindictive arch enemy is back to taunt him and that a garrulous Malawian has taken residence in his dormitory, along with the regular inmates and misfits he calls friends. Spud's world has never seemed less certain; he attempts to master Shakespeare, wrestles constantly with his God, and the power of negative thinking, and develops an aversion to fried fish after a shocking discovery about his grandmother, Wombat.Written by

Ghastly! Now I have to find something else to say for another nine lines. I remember when I saw Spud 1 - I was utterly delighted and totally surprised... a truly very funny, poignant, interesting movie about a poor boy with dysfunctional parents who is given a scholarship to a posh school. It was well written superbly directed and classy. Spud 2, also, was a wonderful romp of silliness, genuine class, humour and great acting with a top class script.
And now, to destroy all of the above, joy, silliness, fun and worthy moments, comes this grand, classless load of slop, filled with ugly adults who frankly, made me want to puke with their sex, booze and misery... what the hell has that got to do with coming of age and a sense of joyful surrender and abandon and beating the odds? Utterly nothing.
Spud 3 is so BAD that by about the 4 minute stage I was praying it would be over soon. The usual 'end of movie' three sentences of the deep and meaningful, which usually tops the Spud series, were lost on me. I was busy switching it off.
CLASSLESS, TRASHY, GARBAGE. WASTE OF MY MONEY!
