What it's about:

The pranksters are back for Round Two, and this time, no one’s safe! Under the banner of the newly established Comical Actors’ Commission (K.@.K) they prank their “prey” when their prey least expects it.

Students find themselves in the midst of a drug bust, a blind man asks for help while buying condoms, video store assistants discover pornographic films in customers’ DVD cases, and a well-known rock band is threatened by the police.

You can't hide from K.@.K — and that's no joke.

What we thought:

Growing up with Leon Schuster candid camera prank movies there isn’t a prank I haven’t seen. Ek Joke Net 2 doesn’t bring anything new to the table.

Trying to follow the tried and tested Schuster recipe the cast prank an unsuspecting public. The movie is built around a fake newscast in a fake studio. The news readers played by Solomon Cupido and Lelia Etsebeth introduce each prank.

The pranks are pretty standard: a blind man trying to buy condoms, an X-ray machine to curb crime at supermarkets, children reacting to a puppet coming to life, a taxi scene with two guys trying to pick each other up and some famous people getting into tricky situations with a fan and the police.

There are some real gems when it comes to the reaction of people and these will have you laughing out loud. But there are too few of these moments to sustain the film making it quite labourious to sit through.

There is an embarrassing Julius Malema rip off that just felt awkward and the cameraman’s somewhat unhealthy relationship with his pet mouse made me cringe. In these skits they really were trying too hard.

If you’re longing for some candid camera nostalgia skip this and rather pop in The Millenium Menace DVD. Nothing beats the iconic rainbow yoghurt skit!
