Cape Town — It’s the last stretch to Christmas and an end to 2020 which devastated many with the novel coronavirus pandemic. Now what we all need is some cheer and a good laugh!
In the spirit of giving, Netflix is showing South African romantic comedy, How To Ruin Christmas: The Wedding, that will leave your ribs hurting with belly laughs. It will definitely leave you in stitches.
The three-episode series tells the story of Tumi Sello (Busi Lurayi), the family rebel and prodigal daughter, who returns home from Cape Town to Johannesburg, for her sister’s Christmas wedding. But her homecoming is filled with less than warm greetings and warnings of not ruining Beauty’s – played by Thando Thabete – big day.
Then what was supposed to be a happy day for the two families is filled with chaos.
And as expected, Tumi is to blame!
Tumi ends up being the reason why the wedding gets cancelled. She comes late for her dress fittings, forgets the towels she was supposed to bring and worse gets drunk and sleeps with her married brother-in-law Themba (Motlatsi Mafatshe), who is also a recovering alcoholic. To make matters worse, she has a slip up and spills that her sister is pregnant which shocks both families and devastates Beauty as it was supposed to be a secret.
