Goofs

When Shirley returns to her office on her second morning back in Hong Kong, she is confronted by a horde of employees threatening to strike. Shirley tells them that she will get them their raise, their medical benefits, their dental benefits, and their 401-K benefits. In Hong Kong, in 1993, there was government health care, since Hong Kong was a colony of the United Kingdom. Also, a 401-K is an American defined benefit, employee contribution retirement plan, and would not apply for the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, or China, which have government pensions/retirement programs.

Only because we all love that bushman
8 February 2001 | by Mort-31See all my reviews

As a sequel to the brilliant "Gods Must Be Crazy` by Jamie Uys this movie is quite passable. I think, everybody loves N!xau, the bushman who never even tried to learn other languages than his own (which makes up the main difference between him and other screen "savages` like Tarzan or George of the Jungle). We want to see him and so we don't care about what happens around him. Sending him to Hong Kong is a lovely idea.

Of course, apart from some successful scenes, the movie is unintentionally funny at best. The actors and actresses from Hong Kong are so helplessly bad and amateurish that sometimes it's rather embarrassing to watch them. But also the guy playing the American boss - didn't they have enough money to employ a professional actor? The story is silly, the characters are most implausible - these facts disturb a little, after all: the movie doesn't do justice to Jamie Uys at all, although it features some references to the first part. Still, as long as we can see N!xau, we tolerate everything else.

What will he do next? Maybe, he becomes a film star and doesn't even notice. He could also take part at the Olympic Games. Whatever: I'm expecting the next N!xau film. As long as he doesn't learn English, it's okay with me.
