Leafy is a man that makes himself useful to his boss, the snobbish Arthur Fanshawe, who has no clue about what's going on around him, but who wants to use his secretary to carry on his dirty work, which involves getting one of the most powerful men in the country to do business with his country.The young secretary has an eye for beautiful women around him, especially Hazel, a native beauty, with whom he is having an affair. Things get complicated because Sam Adekunle, a man running for president of the country, wants a favor from Leafy in return after he has accepted the invitation to visit London. The proposition involves swaying a prominent doctor's opposition to a plan that will make Adenkule filthy rich.

I guessed every aspect of the ending in the first half hour. And not just the ending--you'll see every plot device coming a mile away. -Every major scene relied on a series of absolutely ridiculous coincidences.-Similar to the coincidences, the characters are incredibly stupid and unbelievable. I don't want to spoil everything, but there are so many things that anyone with the slightest bit of common sense would have done to get out of their situation, and the movie doesn't even try to explain why these people don't.-Along the lines of its being predictable, the movie is so in your face with everything it's painful to watch. It's really pandering and allows for no ambiguity. They give you so many clues about everything that any moron would know what's going on, and then they still have to go that extra step further and state the obvious. Again, it's tough to describe without spoilers, but trust me: it's like the producers thought they were making a movie for not-too-bright kindergarteners.

Ryan V (nl) wrote: Not as good as the original. But it's nice to see a sight not viewed often since 1990: Steve Guttenberg finding work. A man of Brando or Olivier's talents should grace the silver screen as often as possible. I'd even settle for a new Police Academy or Don't Tell Her it's Me Part II: The Return.
