It's Not That Bad!
5 September 2004 | by (Winnemucca, NV) – See all my reviews

I'm not saying that it's that good either.

It's certainly the weekest of the Gods Must Be Crazy series. And a martini or two taken internally beforehand will help.

N!xau, you see, is stranded in China after somehow getting there while attending the All-China conference in Swaziland (maybe he discovered the martini). He needs money to get back to the Kalahari and is working in advertising by running around the city carrying this giant Coke bottle.

Amy Fong, the trainer of a team in the upcoming foot race sees how fast he is and eventually gets him on her team. The race eventually gets started. It's along the Great Wall of China and eventually winds up in Panda country.

The bad guy is trying to capture a panda. N!xau, the race team and the pretty young Chinese girl have to fight off the bad guys, rescue the panda and of course win the race.
