Movie Info

Set out on the open highway with three comedians as they make their way to South Africa's biggest annual music festival in director John Barker's raucous road-trip comedy. Kags is a egotistical chauvinist who takes great joy in tormenting his buddies, Joey is a conflicted Muslim striving to avoid the temptations of club life while remaining faithful to his girlfriend, and Dave is a blissfully naïve dishwasher who longs for his shot at the big time; together the trio pile into their car to make the drive to Oppikoppi and showcase their standup skills to a hard-partying crowd of rock & roll fans while discovering that sometimes when you gamble everything, you can get a bit more than you bargained for. Named after a popular Johannesburg staple consisting of hollowed out bread stuffed with a mixture of vegetables, curries, and meats and frequently enjoyed after a long night of drinking, Bunny Chow presents an unguarded look at contemporary South Africa as a growing cultural melting pot simmering with youthful energy and renaissance. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Bunny Chow

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

...This slice-of-life picture has a loose, youthful energy recalling early Spike Lee that is entirely fitting for a country that is enjoying a cultural growth spurt.

Top Critic

Over-filled and self-indulgent, this is an irritating little film.

Empire Magazine

The trio of male leads must rank among the most odious protagonists in modern movie history, and the film finds itself with almost nothing to say about them beyond tepid indulgence.

Little White Lies

while the absence of AIDS or post-apartheid angst might make Bunny Chow a refreshing addition to the body of new South African cinema, it is still the kind of misfiring act that leaves you wanting to heckle rather than cheer.

Eye for Film

The story puts the pot in "melting pot", as we watch these stoner dudes take a road trip to a festival in search of fame, fortune and laughs. It's got the trappings of a better film, but unfortunately the jokes land flat.
