Vind jouself, ten spyte van hoërskool

This South African Afrikaans teen movie borrows a few plotline ideas from Hollywood. The hero is the biggest nerd in school, who naturally has dreams and desires just like any other young man. Things seem to go his way when the rugby captain dumps his girlfriend, the hottest babe around. She picks the nerd as a tool for revenge, seeking to turn him into the rugby captain. This proves more difficult than she thought it would be, but they persevere, making new friends along the way.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Theresa Smith quote iconThe good news first: this is a better rugby movie than Number 10. Bad news next: it sucks swampwater on almost every other level.
Die Burger
Eduan Maggo
The Citizen
David Jenkin quote iconBakgat is a big step in the right direction for the SA film industry.
Ivan Sadler quote iconCross lowbrow teen comedy American Pie with decades old local TV and the unhappy malformed result will be Bakgat!, proudly showing that SA can compete globally when it comes to producing badly made lowest common denominator aimed crap.
