Last night I took my little ister to the movies for the movie premier of Mad Buddies and oh boy did we laugh!! It has such a funny cast and the story is well told. I am a huge fan of Leon Schuster and an even bigger fan of Kenneth Nkosi, so this was a treat for me!!
One of the most eagerly awaited theatrical releases of 2012, Leon Schuster’s Mad Buddies, has completed filming across Gauteng and Kwa-Zulu Natal. Mad Buddies is the latest comedy caper from the legendary South African filmmaker and fans can now view the first hilarious trailer as well as see a teaser poster for the film right here.
Says Schuster, who is responsible for 4 of the top 10 grossing films of all time in South Africa, ‘I am very excited to share this trailer with fans! I can’t wait to hear how people will start reacting to Mad Buddies.’
The film kicks off when sworn enemies, Boetie (Schuster) and Beast, played by Kenneth Nkosi (Jerusalema, Tsotsi, White Wedding), are forced to embark on a road trip as unwitting subjects of a new TV reality show devised by a gorgeous TV Producer, Kelsey, played by Tanit Phoenix (Spud, Straight Outta Benoni). On camera, with the whole of South Africa in on the joke, the pair comes unstuck at every stage of this hilarious journey until they discover that they have been conned and join forces to exact revenge.
Not convinced? Check the trailers and I am sure you will change your mind
Mad Buddies also stars long-time Schuster collaborator Alfred Ntombela as Mr Mda, the Minister of Tourism; is Directed by Gray Hofmeyr and Produced by Helena Spring.The film releases nationwide on 22 June 2012
I give the movie an 8/10
