saw it, all of it and bonus, it was lame jokes, no originality, a stereotypical broader line racist observation, as you will notice the Africans themselves did not laugh at his jokes, in response, he busted on them .the film was careful not to have any audio from his standup performance in front of mainly white SOUTH AFRIAKKANERS, they producers knew American are more conscious / critical of slocky humor

It's so racist, it'll make you cringe & fear for Pauly's life with the stupid things he says & does IF you believe it was real... it wasn't. As my bf says,"its just Shooooooooowwwwwbizzzz. " lol. Reminded me of BORAT, but not as funny.

I expected a typical Pauly Shore movie, and he delivered. The way it is filmed is different than his other films, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you're an adult looking for something classy and smart, stay away. But the younger generation that still appreciates Shore's comedic style will love it.

It is obvious that Shore is slightly off these days, but his deranged antics are still pretty funny. This mockumentary is clearly staged at points, but manages to walk the line between sweet and funny pretty well.

These mockumentaries are a sweet little change of pace for a slapstick actor who has long been wasting his time.

Has its moments. Thankfully it's a mockumentary in every way.

This movie was so funny. Omg "she had the body of beyonce and the head of a midget."

This really could've been a 30 minute special instead of stretched out into a movie. There were a couple funny lines, but most of it was just...UNCOMFORTABLE.

Seriously don't understand how Pauly Shore isn't in more movies. Awesome, funny, I can't believe they convinced the kids to be a part of this madness.

The box says "Inappropriate at times", that's an understatement. Seriously I think I might have nightmares about what it's like to have Pauly Shore as a father. He does call himself the creepy unkle, but I"m not so sure he realizes how true that is. He's too much of a child himself to be in charge of anyone else. You really only have a morbid curiosity while watching this movie regarding the question, is he actually going to adopt these kids or is he just toying with their emotions. It's slow, and stupid, he actually spends about ten minutes of the film is South Africa at some Oprah school bothering the guards about if Oprah has actually been there and blah blah blah. Don't expect it to be as good as Good Hair, because that one was planned out. It's almost as if Pauly woke up one and and slapped together a crew and decided to film, and it does seem that way. Most of the film is his blunders because he can't figure out how to get anyone to talk on camera, because he never bothered to get concent before hand.
