Academy Award(r) winner Sean Connery heads an all-star cast in A Good Man in Africa - a wickedly funny comedy about sex, power and colliding cultures. Politics are already strained between English imperialists and the West African government of Kinjanja when womanizing British diplomat Morgan Leafy (Colin Friels) is caught in bed with Celia (Joanne Whalley-Kilmer), wife of corrupt Kinjanjan presidential candidate Sam Adekunle (Academy Award(r) winner Louis Gossett Jr.). As punishment, Leafy is forced into bribing an official who has voted down a project that stands to make Adekunle very rich. Leafy thinks he's gotten off easy... until he learns the lone holdout is none other than Kinjanja's own brick wall of integrity, Dr. Alex Murray (Connery). Meanwhile, Leafy must also contend with his absurdly stuffy boss Fanshawe (John Lithgow), Fanshawe's lusty wife (Diana Rigg) and their luscious, too friendly daughter! Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as "a grand party with wonderful guests!," this wildly witty satire is your invitation to "incorruptible" entertainment.

Not nearly so vivid nor humorous as the book, but still a decent representation. One misses most of the internal dialog of Leafy that is so central to the character in the book.Published 5 months ago by Rick Berlet

This movie is without blood and without the satirical bite that I had hoped for. A number of good ideas are introduced, but none developed, most salient of which is the character... Read morePublished 20 months ago by Dennis M. Hannon
I do not actually own this product. Yes, it is true about what I wrote before. That is my opinion on this South African made film.Published on January 13, 2013 by Paul C. Wallace
