Reviews
Mine: Some very funny slapstick comedy but ultimatly falls flat. Not enough energy maybe, or the characters are not interesting enough.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Highly original, offbeat comedy about cultural clashes in Africa, involving a bushman who encounters civilization for the first time, a pretty schoolteacher whose new assignment is a remote village, and a bumbling scientist whose attempts to make her welcome result in slapstick catastrophes. Film itself is clumsy at times, but completely disarming. It didn't receive major U. S. release until 1984, but then became the biggest foreign box-office hit in history! Uys, who also wrote and produced, plays the reverend. Followed by a sequel. Panavision.
