THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY II (Theatrical Release Japan 1988)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Stars ìììì

The Gods Must Be Crazy
II—clean, family entertainment with a refreshing innocence not often seen in American Hollywood-style movies—demonstrates that a thoroughly entertaining movie portraying moral character and real family emotion can be made that not only gives the audience a strong bang for its buck, but also brings good financial return. While the sequel is not as good as the first film in the series, it’s a real treat that one doesn’t want to miss. Acting again relies on the talents of Bushman Xixo (Nixau) as he looks for his children after they have inadvertently boarded a poacher's truck heading out of bushman territory. It’s fun entertainment as hospitality, helping others in need, and love of family push this story to a very happy ending.
