Movie Info

It's modern day South Africa and in Cape Town the beautiful Ayanda (Zandile Msutwana) is just days away from achieving her lifelong dream: the perfect white wedding. The only problem is that her husband-to-be, the loyal, committed Elvis (Kenneth Nkosi) is 1800 kilometres away in Johannesburg. He sets off on Tuesday night by bus to Durban intending to connect with his childhood friend and best-man Tumi (Rapulana Seiphemo). But the plans start to go awry when Tumi doesn't show up at the bus station. Not an auspicious beginning, but this is just the first in many comic and illuminating misadventures they meet along the way. In the end, the two lovers learn that celebrating their union is more about the journey than getting to the church on time.-- (C) Stepping Stone Picturesmore

While it's a relief to visit a side of Africa that's not beset by poverty and war, we learn little about the characters.

A film that chafes, even as it ingratiates.

Top Critic

A tepid, cliché-ridden marriage comedy from South Africa.

This is a movie so excited to exist that it overwhelms you with plot. Sitting through it is like opening the door to an overloaded closet. Stuff just tumbles out.

Boston Globe
Top Critic

Some scenes are mild fun, but the mishaps that befall our hero aren't especially inventive, and although the South African setting provides a bit of interest, it's never really used incisively.

Top Critic

An enjoyable film set in South Africa that makes full use of the country's lingering apartheid tensions and generational divides without ever losing its smile.
