Another Gods Must Be Crazy entry
6 July 2006 | by cruelshoes1See all my reviews

Another bizarre entry in the "Gods Must BeCrazy" series. If you are obsessed with all of the Gods movies (1-5, that Zulu one, etc...), then you have to seek this one out and rent it. Otherwise, forget that you were ever here. Ha ha ha. This doesn't have the lovable bushman, but it has a Caucasians male and female character that were in the original movie. Merius Weyers played Andrew Steyn in the original film, and Sandra played Kate Thompson in the original film. Their characters are almost exactly the same in this one. It is available on DVD, but there are rumors that it is out of production (the copies that are out there may be all that are going to be made).
