I enjoyed it.
30 December 2007 | by dcp003See all my reviews

I saw this when i was young and i enjoy it to this day. Has some pretty good songs and an interesting plot. Worth a watch on a rainy day. There are some pretty funny parts and the locations seems pretty believable that you are in Africa. I would really be surprised if this movie was really shot there but it looks good. The acting was overly poor in parts but what do you expect from a low budget 80's movie that did not make it past VHS. LOL. The scene with the old spice and the brief case is one of my favorites of the film. AND you cannot beat the reality of which is today of the movie industry turning every crap idea into a movie which this movie is pretty much based on. I wish that more low budget movies where made like this.
