Storyline

Kwagga Robertse owns a farm shop in the fictional Southern African country of Nambabwe and usually cons foreign tourists by pretending to kill a lion, thus earning him the nickname 'Urumbo' (Lion Killer) from the country's natives. Kwagga is upset when the UN sends a platoon of incompetent soldiers with the United Nations Transition Assistance Group (U.N.T.A.G.), to monitor the peace process, and ensure free and fair elections after the Nambabwean War for Independence. The U.N.T.A.G's American leader, Major Bradick D. Mackay and his second-in-command, Captain Zapman are offered a diamond worth a lot of money in the U.S., and they must pay 200,000 USD to Duan Robertse, Kwagga's competitive brother trying to buy a farm left to them by their dead father.

Look beyond the prejudice
3 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie, and I thought it was hilarious. If people would stop for a moment trying to nit pick every possible reason to call a movie racist or anything else they might get around to enjoying this. Movies are not all meant to be a glorification to Political Correctness.

In this movie, you have setting in Africa which in some cases will blow you away in regards to the scenery and natural surroundings this was filmed in. I think a lot of trouble was gone to ensuring the dress of local tribes and their ways. Hopefully if you end up watching this, you will get to see, or have seen "The Gods Must Be Crazy".

From what I can remember as a kid I always wanted there to be a third of these movies as it was so funny. When people stop knowing how to laugh at themselves, the world will be a sadder place.
