Storyline

Dolf is a regular guy from a modest background in Knysna. He is content with his normal small town existence, his group of friends and his eccentric grandparents. His life is thrown upside down when he falls for a beautiful stranger Stephanie, a somewhat wealthy visitor to the sleepy coastal resort. What she has not been honest about, is that she is engaged to the Prince of Lichtenstein, but has a cold feet, and is hiding out in Knysna. Stephanie is drawn to the simplicity of Dolf's life and yearns for her own to be as uncomplicated and away from the limelight. When the lie becomes apparent, Dolf is conflicted. He is in love with Stephanie, but also feels an inferiority complex come to the fore. Will he fight for her or give up? He may not be in Prince Rafael's social or financial league, but Dolf can offer Stephanie a life that she can identify with, free from the burden of royal expectations and the international media microscope. She is just a girl wanting a guy to love her and for... Written by Anonymous

a good Afrikaans comedy
5 February 2017 | by RedRainbowUnicorn23See all my reviews

This is a decent Afrikaans comedy and its good without trying too hard.

There is some crude sex jokes but for the most part it stay squeaky clean which when the Afrikaans movies started out again in 2007-2010 it was rear finding a good family comedy.

Neels van jaarsveld again delivers he is a very good actor.

But the parts that made the movie for me is all the scenes involving Julie stryjdom(lady DI roos) and shaleen surtie Richards(Gerda) HER facial expressions are priceless

If you want a good comedy that's suitable for the family with just a little bit of adult humor this is your movie
