Trivia

The aircraft used in the movie was a modified Lazair Ultralight. It did not actually fly, as it had no engine and was made of fibreglass. The airplane was fitted with a small electric motor to turn the propellor, when filming on the ground. With the help of a crane, the mock airplane was lifted and slowly swung around with the actors inside, for its scenes in the film, and the footage then sped up in post-production. An identical, but small scale radio operated model airplane was used for long shots. The full scale version would later be displayed suspended from the ceiling of Stringfellows, an aviation-themed restaurant in Bloemfontein, South Africa, part-owned by producer Boet Troskie. The airplane was later seen on display in Mimosa Mall, site of Troskie's Mimosa Films offices. Meanwhile, the radio controlled model plane would be seen hanging on display in a hobbyshop in Cresta, a suburb of Randburg, near the border of Johannesburg. See more »

Goofs

When the plane is hanging from the tree with Dr. Taylor in it and the cheetah sticks it head through the hole in the floor, you can see either an actor's hand beneath the head or an actor wearing a cheetah suit. See more »

Brenner: Here. Make him get in.
George: [points it at Xixo like he isn't going to use it] Here. You get in.
Xixo: [speaking own dialect]
George: [gestures with gun to truck] You come with us.
Xixo: [takes the gun out of George's hands]
George: [gets it back quickly, nervously] Hey. Hey. You mustn't do that.
George: [grumbling at how stupid George is being, runs over and knocks Xixo to the ground] Get me a tie down!

The other innocent joy
28 August 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This sequel has the same innocence and joy of the first one, just not as much. It's nice, but gets a little self-conscious. Part of the joy and purity of the first one is that it hadn't looked in the mirror too much. This one - well, it's still good, it'll lighten your heart to watch it, but you'll check your watch once or twice.

The first movie moved on the premise one Coke bottle in the garden of Eden could corrupt it. (They did a totally believable job of it, too, you ought to check out the first picture.) Civilization is a little heavier handed this time.

This picture has some of that contrived feel that most sequels have. But it's still a pleasure. How often do you see real joy in a picture, family love, innocence - and lots of laughs? A slapstick cops and robbers type of plot. The kids loved it.
