Pretty good sequel to a classic
23 April 2003 | by (Tucson, AZ) – See all my reviews

While the original film would have been very difficult to top, The Gods Must Be Crazy II is certainly a strong movie. The innocence and silliness that was captured so amazingly in the first film was faithfully reconstructed in this film. Xixo was much more commanding in this film, and the two kids who played his children were also quite good. Unfortunately, the film makers had to beat the idea into the ground, and made an terrible third sequel. Alas, sometimes a great idea shouldn't always be built upon.
