Yankee Zulu: Homophobic Buddy Bonding
They spend "carefree days down by the river," skinny-dipping (with screen-filling rear nudity), racing, pranking, and hugging.
Then Rhino meets a girl, Rowena, who, as Zulu recalls, "spoiled it for us" by sweet-talking him into a William Tell stunt, shooting a can from atop Zulu's head. Traumatized by the knowledge that his friend almost killed him, "I knew my life here was over."
They head out to the resort of Sun City, accompanied by Rhino's daughter, with Diehard and Rowena in hot pursuit. More slapstick hijinks ensue. They get a gay-stereotype hairdresser to make them up as a 19th century slave owner and his black servant; they recreate the tin can incident, with Zulu as the shooter and a lemon instead of a gun; they are suspended over a cliff with an elephant; they meet Prince Charles and his son William.
