Movie Info

This sequel to the enormous international hit The Gods Must Be Crazy isn't quite as fresh and enchanting as the original, but it is still a garden of small delights. N!Xau, the Kalihari bushman who starred in the first film, is separated from his children while on a hunting expedition in the desert. The emphasis is on the kids, who are kidnaped by elephant poachers. This activity is counterpointed with the adventures of the film's "civilized" characters, transplanted New York attorney Lena Farugia and zoologist Hans Strydom, who find themselves stranded in the desert (their adventures are similar to those experienced by fish-out-of-water Linda Kozlowski in Crocodile Dundee). Meanwhile, a couple of soldiers who've wandered away from a border war devote their time to capturing, and escaping from, each other. As in the first film, the various subplots converge, with N!Xau once more emerging as the hero of the hour.

    A healthy dose of deja vu, but still better than 99% of most sequels.

    I don't really remember this now, but I was forced to watch it at school and I HATED it. It wasn't funny at all and it was just horrible.

    This was one of the funniest family films I have ever seen. I was young when I saw it, but I still love it. my whole family loves it and after renting it 4 times we finally bought it. there is very little colourful language and although its not as original as the first one, it is just as funny (if not more so). you've gotta check it out. Perhaps its a little on the cheesy side, but it's so original...and teaches you a lesson: are we really so much advanced than these people? Ignorance is bliss... <a href="http://photobucket.com/images/gods%20must%20be%20crazy" target="_blank"><img src="http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g258/katkat_26/movies/gods-must-be-crazy-ii-DVDcover2.jpg" border="0" alt="the gods must be crazy 2 Pictures, Images and Photos"/></a>
