Rob van Vuuren

We’ve all heard the classic Van Der Merwe, jokes. Whoever he is, he is the butt of all SA jokes.

Now instead of telling your Van Der Merwe joke when you’ve had one too many, you build up all your arsenal by watching him on the big screen.

The trailer has just been released.

Producers Bruce Lawley, Bruce Macdonald, Craig Jones and Murray Macdonald bring you this star-studded affair with the role of Van, the underdog, played by the well-known and very talented, Rob van Vuuren. 

Setting the scene for all sorts of problems and challenges, the film centres around Van’s daughter, Marike, who returns home from a gap year in England with a new fiancé, George, a British medical student. 

The film opens at the North Cape Ster-Kinekor on July 28.
