Review by John Markham (posted on 19-May-2005)

It was the one and only Navajo Native American Comedy. When the Navajos in the film spoke, they would be translated in subtitles. The Navajos in the audience who understood the actual spoken words would roar with laughter. It was nothing like the subtitles. The actual spoken Navajo usually made fun of white men. A Great movie for Navajo native speakers, but generally sucked for everyone else.
