The Gods Must Be Crazy

Director Jamie Uys has a passable way with physical comedy, but the best gags in this 1981 comedy from South Africa stem from its zany political satire: chief among the film's many hilarious inventions is an independent black republic named “Botswana,” where kindly whites live and work arm in arm with contented, childlike blacks and everyone pitches in to combat the murderous, Cuban-sponsored guerrillas spilling over the northern border of this bastion of democracy. Let your conscience be your guide. 108 min.
