Most amazing comedy of the time
24 January 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is a movie that'll have you in splits, and thoroughly enjoying yourself. A sequel to the "Gods must be crazy"(even though not from the same director etc), this movie is probably the best of the lot.

A parody of a hit Chinese comedy movie called Mr. Vampire, the story begins when a Chinese guy and his vampire grandfather end up in the Kalahari desert. This is where the real fun starts. They meet various people, Nixau, a bushman(the only character who's made it to all the "Gods must be crazy" films).

While telling you more would be possible, it'd spoil the pure unadulterated fun! This is a must-watch, as are all the other prequels.

I rate this a solid 10!
