Storyline

For hundreds of years, Africa has existed in a state of despair. Famine, civil wars and rampant disease have left the continent without hope, but for the efforts of Western do-gooders. At first, they arrived with food, bibles and the magic of penicillin; more recently they have hosted rock concerts and sent plane loads of grain. And in the last decade of the 20th century they arrived and took babies home with them. First there was Angelina, then Madonna, and now...Pauly Shore! The film builds its comedy foundation on the international interest in Celebrity Adoptions, and the debate that surrounds these transactions on both sides of the Atlantic. Sometimes politically incorrect and never scared to tread on manicured toes. Written by Pauly Shore

Misunderstood
20 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Whoever wrote the last review must not know a lot about movies at all.. This movie was suppose to a knock off of Borat without all the sexually oriented humor. Although some of the humor seemed like he was trying to hard to maintain his 1990s pot head humor, he really wasn't funny then and isn't funny now. Don't really know what people was expecting from this movie. I knew the movie wasn't going to win a Emmy or a Oscar and I wasn't let down.

Final Note:

If you like Borat. It is worth watching.

If you don't like Borat you will hate this movie.
