    Would you mind pasting a direct link please.

    Edit:

    HITCHHIKER is a light-hearted, romantic movie that takes a look at the lifestyles of the rich and famous in South Africa. A young man leaves his game farm to go and convince the girl of his dreams that he loves her. She is a student at the University of Cape Town. He gets picked up by a rich Englishman who is driving his vintage Rolls Royce from Johannesburg via Kimberley to the Cape. The two men strike up a comfortable friendship during the trip. They are both going to meet the women they adore on their arrival in Cape Town.

    Filled with romance, jealousy, passion, old money and a bit of international crime to boot, HITCHHIKER follows two parallel love stories from the Highveld bush to the winelands of Stellenbosch.

    The film also showcases the scenic beauty of South Africa: Cape Town in all its splendour, including Clifton Beach and the West Coast, as never seen before. Breathtaking landscapes of Mphumalanga and historic Kimberley are active characters in the movie.
    Directed by Chris du Toit, HITCHHIKER is a first effort by a South African team of film producers and introduces a host of old and promising new talent.

    Thats the one I want info on regarding age restriction etc.

    We know what their lifestyles are like... They spend as little time as possible in SA.

    So is it going to be full of naked woman?

    In my eyes its a sh*t movie...It was based on the orig movie called The Hitcher starring Rutgher Hauer...This movie ( currently showing ) is about 85% the same as the original ( i think they tried to copy it without much effort ). As i saw the original, I would suggest that you first try and see the original...the acting in that was supperb!! If you cant get it, i guess this one will be ok-ish

    Just saw it today. it was absolutely horrific. I really tried to like it because it is South African, but it really was TERRIBLE. The acting regarding most the of the cast members was so horrifying that it cringed every time they spoke a line. At least the senior portion of the cast was watchable.

    If it deals with the truths of the road as described by George Carlin in, "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back", then its gonna get weird

    EDIT: Found it

    Code:
                  
                   Jay and Bob are walking backwards, hitching still.
    
                                         JAY
                             This sucks balls, man. How come we 
                             ain't getting no rides?
    
                                         VOICE
                             'Cause you're doing it all wrong.
    
                   Jay and Bob look behind them. There's a GUY hitching as well.
    
                                         GUY
                             You gotta induce the drivers a little.
    
                                         JAY
                             Like how?
    
                                         GUY
                             Like this.
    
                   The GUY holds out his sign to them. It reads: Will Give Head 
                   For Ride.
    
                                         JAY
                             Yeah, but what happens when you get 
                             in the car, and you don't make with 
                             the head? Don't they kick your ass 
                             to the curb?
    
                                         GUY
                             Sure--if you don't make with the 
                             head.
    
                   Jay and Bob look at him for a long beat. Then--
    
                                         JAY
                             Eww! You eat the cock?!?
    
                                         GUY
                             Yeah. If it'll get me a few hundred 
                             miles across country. I'll take a 
                             shot in the mouth.
    
                                         JAY
                             Yeah, but we ain't gay.
    
                                         GUY
                             Well, neither am I. But have you 
                             seen the price of bus tickets lately? 
                             ****--I don't wanna cough up two 
                             hundred bucks just to get to Chicago.
    
                                         JAY
                             Well, I don't wanna cough up some 
                             dude's sperm!
    
                                         GUY
                             Don't be so suburban--this is the 
                             new millennium. Gay, straight--it's 
                             all the same now. There're no more 
                             lines.
    
                   Jay draws a line on the ground with his foot.
    
                                         JAY
                             There's one. On this side of it, we 
                             ain't gay.
    
                                         GUY
                             All hitchers do this. Why do you 
                             think people pick us up? If you get 
                             a ride, it's expected--I don't care 
                             who the driver is. It's the first 
                             rule in the Book.
    
                                         JAY
                             What book?
    
                                         GUY
                             The unwritten Book of the Road.
    
                   A TRUCK starts to pull over to the side of the road. The Guy 
                   points to it, as if to say "See?" The passenger-side door 
                   opens. The Guy climbs into the truck and closes the door. He 
                   looks out the window at Jay and Bob.
    
                                         GUY
                             Follow the rules of the Book, and 
                             you'll get where you're going in no 
                             time.  Excuse me.
    
                   Through the windshield, Jay and Silent Bob see the Guy go 
                   face-first into the TRUCK DRIVER'S lap. The Truck Drivers 
                   smiles, and the truck takes off, roaring down the road.
    
                   Jay and Silent Bob watch the truck disappear. Then, a CAR 
                   pulls up. The NUN driving rolls down the passenger side window 
                   and leans toward them.
    
                                         NUN
                             You two boys need a ride?
