A most delightful family comedy!

"I recently learned that my daughter and son-in-law have never seen this wonderful sequel, although they loved the original film. Therefore, I had to rectify this tragic lack by ordering a copy for them to share with their children. No family should be without it.Anyone who liked THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY will love this one as much or more, especially if you have children. The two young children of our heroic bushman are thoroughly delightful as they are carried into the unknown, miles from their home. And their father's momentous encounters with the other characters as he frantically searches for his offspring are a joy to watch.Everything about this little gem of a comedy is fresh and creative. It is difficult to pick out one scene that is more interesting than the others. The animal characters make you wonder, "How on earth did they get them to do that?" The little badger that won't give up deserves a special award of some kind--what a ham! Then there is the monkey that keeps drinking the heroine's water before she can get to it. Even the cute little airplane seems to take on a life of its own. And when the bushman finally recovers his children, their tears of joy will reflect your own, whether they are from laughter or empathy with the reunited father and children. If you want to see an extremely well-conceived and well-crafted comedy which is a pure delight from beginning to end, I could not recommend any film more highly than THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY, Part 2."
Very funny sequel

"The Gods Must Be Crazy II (1989) C-97 min. D: Jamie Uys. N!xau, Lena Farugia, Hans Strydom, Eiros, Nadies, Erick Bowen. Sequel to the hit box-office smash is just as funny, concerning the bushman's quest to find his children, who have been "kidnapped" by a pair of poachers. Meanwhile, two inept soldiers are out to make each other suffer through slapstick catastrophes and a duo of scientists find themselves lost in the desert. Farugia is hilarious as the anti-nature scientist, while Bowen is funny as well (as a Cuban soldier who loses his sense of direction every few minutes). RATING: 8 out of 10. Rated PG for partial nudity, slapstick violence, and strong language."
How come these cannot be found?

"I do not think I can vouch for rhino's stomping out fires, but I've been through the Kalihari and I CAN speak for the baboons. They'd LIKE these movies. I did too, very much, and not out of simple nostalgia that I've been there. They are cute and funny and oddly enough NOT so improbable as they might seem. That South Africans would call an impish if not wicked thorn bush a 'wait-a-bit' bush is absolutely correct no matter how cute the person is who fumbles into one in her underwear. But sorry, that's the original movie. So- why isn't the original GODS MUST BE CRAZY available? Why is the sequel only on VHS, when DVD makes virtually anything better? And how come I never even heard there was a 3rd one, which I infer from other reviews is named THE GODS ARE GETTING CRAZIER? I copied the first two long ago, but on the basis of those first two I will buy the set, 3rd one unseen, the moment they are released on DVD."
Everyone should see this!

Oh my god, I just saw this movie, and it's got to be one of my favorites ever. Every scene and every aspect of this movie is great and delightful- its humor, the animals, the zany/sexy lawyer, the level-headed and skilled zoologist, and of course N!xau and his two sons, all trying to find each other. The depiction of the Bushmen's culture and skills was very sincere and expert. The Kalahari setting put you intimately in that environment and inspires me to one day make it to Africa- more so than nature shows that seem to always be directed in the same style (Microcosmos is one exception). The flight through the rainclouds and escarpments was other-worldly. The little brothers snatching fruit from the moving truck and playing in the tank of water was so adorable. Their tears of joy and smiles as they finally find each other brought me to tears. I liked N!xau's total control in creating that fire patch. Oh and the two soldiers sharing running duties cracked me up! And like another reviewer mentioned, the social and political commentary comes through from just being, not from forcing it on the viewer. The animals were so great. It really gives you an appreciation for the great things we have in this world- that great, veiny baobab tree, the personalities of the baboons, badger, and hyenas. Even the documentary-style narrator made sense. I just wish more people could see this, it is so funny and endearing."
