The Gods Must Be Crazy II dir. Jamie Uys (1989) Although lacking the surprise value and thematic elegance of the original, this sequel manages to be both faster and funnier, committing fully to its slapstick and the humorous situational comedy of non-natives adrift in the Kalahari. Cleverly filmed with many memorable scenes.

The Gods Must Be Crazy
The Gods Must Be Crazy dir. Jamie Uys (1980) Though of questionable accuracy in depicting African peoples and race relations, this film is cleverly put together and contains masterful flourishes of physical comedy—particularly those sequences where events conspire to render biologist Andrew Steyn’s resourcefulness and bush know-how as hapless bumbling.
