Yet Another Rowlesian Work Of Whimsy... Featuring John Cleese
Except, of course, for two things:
1) It's a South African film, filmed in South Africa with an almost entirely South African cast. Despite my recent foray into American citizenship, I still identify a good bit with South Africa, and am always interested in seeing their film industry thrive... basically, I keep waiting for the next Totsi or District 9. Spud looks like it has some promise, in no small part because...
2) John Cleese. It's a proven fact that almost all things are made better with a good Cleesing, and Spud appears to be no different. He's only got a few seconds in the trailer, but they're a few seconds of wonderful Cleesing.
