Going' on safari with Kad
27 April 2011 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

A good potential ,and a very good lead,as talented in comedies as he is in drama.Plus Africa's superb wild life .But it does not make a good movie for all that .After a promising start ,the movie gets bogged down in unfunny situations (the customs officer)and repetitive tricks (Beauvais town ,it may be riotously funny the first time,but the third or fourth time,well...

This story of an inexperienced safari guide could have been a hilarious spoof on many adventures movie.But it falls short of its goal:the scene of the elephant attacking the "raiders" in their car is ponderous.Too bad ,it's really a missed opportunity!
