COMMENTS: The material contains strong impact themes that are complex and mature in nature presented in a mature local comedy exploring a township lifestyle, gangsterism and crime, cultivating and selling marijuana, drug abuse and drug dealings, township stories, the desperate need to make money in the township, family, verbal sexual references and innuendos, seeking revenge and partying. These themes carry a sense of threat and menace. Although some criminals were arrested at the end of the film, the themes of cultivating and selling marijuana, verbal sexual references and innuendos (could pre expose younger children to adult experiences) as well as gun pointing may be morally and psychologically harmful, distressing and disturbing to younger viewers under the age of 16 years who are still cognitively developing.
