This crass Afrikaans sex comedy doesn't pretend to be anything else and will certainly have you laughing – for all the wrong reasons.
Stoute Boudjies
What it's about:

Hardus, a computer science student, is having a hard time. He can't find a holiday job and he's desperate to lose his virginity. After an embarrassing stint as the chicken outside Chicken Licken, he meets Petro who immediately offers to 'deflower' him. Just when he thinks things are turning around, he and his best mate Vaatjie (from Vaatjie Sien Sy Gat) end up in the hands of a drug lord's henchman.

What we thought of it:

If Hardus thought he was dealing with a 'hard' situation, he should try reviewing this movie! What's a critic to do when there's so much to fault yet she's still giggling?

From the handstitched-by-a-grade-5-needlework-schoolkid plot to the porn movie acting, there's very little to redeem this fliek. Survivor SA winner GiGi's numerous topless scenes and her atrocious delivery of a Russian accent just add insult to injury.

The disconnected elements of the story are simply jalopy vehicles used to deliver flaccid penis jokes. But Willie and Pieter Esterhuizen make no promises of anything else, so you can't say you don't know what you're getting yourself into.

Stoute Boudjies is hardly in the league of the veteran Afrikaans sex movie Lipstiek Dipstiek, not only because it looks like it was made in the same year (1994), but because it just doesn't have the same charm. If Lipstiek Dipstiek is the equivalent of the latest glossy edition of Playboy magazine, then this is more like a used edition of Scope.

It's not completely disconnected from its forefather, though. Lizz Meiring plays Vaatjie's mother, and her daughter Blapsie is a noughties revamp of her character Martie in Lipstiek Dipstiek.

Despite all these faults, there are some magically hilarious moments thanks to perfect comedic timing, even if it wasn't intentional. Unfortunately, many of them are in the trailer.

Angelique Pretorius is surprisingly capable as the busty and blonde 'experienced' heroine Petro. She's believable, likeable and ballsy, unlike her wimpy co-stars. Albert de Villiers's static acting really puts the brakes on this already slow film.

Most of the laughs are at the expense of the rotten filmmaking and crazy WTF moments, but there's something eternally amusing about young boys obsessed with sex (think American Pie). Stoute Boudjies is a more enjoyable watch than Poena is Koning, Vaatjie Sien Sy Gat and Bakgat, but it's still in the same league.

What a silly movie. South Africans have NO TALENT!

Jammer, maar hierdie was by verre die swakste fliek van Willie en Pieter wat ek nog gesien het, maar dit is nog nie pateties soos die Egoli fliek nie! Die gevloek in hierdie vloek was later so erg, dat amper niemand meer gelag het daarvoor nie. Ek sal dit beslis vir niemand aanbeveel nie. Gigi was pateties in die fliek!!!

I think it time that we started thinking about changing the way we do film.I mean we must also remember that kids watch it as well.They looked at this and say this is the way of life that i need to follow.Just an example.look at 2 movies that just shot up and now it a teenage thing today.Fast and the furious with their drag racing and american pie with teen sexuality.

Absolutely disgusting. An insult to our intelligence. Filthy smut. Could not believe that our film-making has sunk so low. And for Mnet to view this rubbish during family viewing time is unacceptable.

If I Stay

It's critically hurt by comparisons to the similar and far superior The Fault in Our Stars, but If I Stay is an above-average teen weepie that should work wonders on its target audience. Read More »
