‘Mad buddies’: weekend box office bonanza

2012-06-26 00:00

LEON Schuster’s latest box office release, Mad Buddies, took in a staggering R4,5 million in its opening weekend.

The result makes Mad Buddies the biggest ever three-day opening weekend for a Schuster film, beating the likes of Mr Bones 1 and 2, Mama Jack and smash hit Schuks Tshalabala’s Survival Guide to South Africa.

Mad Buddies, the 14th outing from the legendary filmmaker, tells the story of sworn enemies, Boetie (Schuster) and Beast, played by Kenneth Nkosi (Jerusalema, Tsotsi, White Wedding), who are forced to embark on a road trip as unwitting subjects of a new TV reality show, devised by a gorgeous TV producer, Kelsey, played by Tanit Phoenix.

On camera, with the whole of South Africa in on the joke, the pair comes unstuck at every stage of this hilarious journey until they discover that they have been conned and join forces to exact revenge.
