very hilarious
5 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

When my sister gave me this movie to watch, I just thought it would be 'just another manageable movie'. I was dead wrong! It was very, very funny. The plot was well laid. One thing led to another and then another. It started with an oraclist that was a white man (Mr Bones). He had been lost in Africa and had been adopted by an African king. The king had no son and desperately needed one. Mr Bones was then sent to the 'sun city' to bring home the king's son that the oracle showed existed. Mr Bones arrived at the city and mistakenly assumed the king's son was Vince Lee (a superstar golf player) who happened to be at the city at that point in time. Mr Bones was pretty sure he was the prince because he was called "the prince" by his fans. Upon meeting Mr Bones, Vince Lee called him a 'bone head' and this made Mr Bones even more sure that this was indeed the prince since he already knew his name.

All in all this movie was really a very enjoyable one. You never stop laughing throughout the movie. You've got to see this.
