Turns out the natives, upon finding Greta in the jungle after her plane crash, instantly began to [[MistakenForGods worship her as a goddess]], apparently just because of [[MightyWhitey the color of her skin]]. She insists that Bob and Mike would have been treated simialrly had Bob not murdered; but, while Bob the "white devil" awaits execution at the hands of the natives, Mike and Greta work up a plan to get the three of them back to civilization. But between the usual dangers in the jungle and the natives' ever-decreasing opinion of "Mata" Greta, escape won't be so easy...

* DoubleStandard: When the male leads show up to "save" Greta the first thing they do is shoot dead an unarmed tribesman. Greta [[WhatTheHellHero calls the guys out for what they've done]], causing the men to express honest confusion over why she or they should care about an African being killed. [[WhatMeasureIsANonCute What measure is a non-white]], apparently.

[[WhatMeasureIsANonCute ([[WhatMeasureIsANonCute What measure is a non-white]], apparently.) At the end, when a native kills Bob with a spear, Mike shoots him even though it appears Bob's all they wanted, and even though Bob was in fact trying to escape his own execution and the spear incident was justified.

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Wanama tells [[TokenEvilTeamate Bob]] (the villain) that he's "very nice"....right after he insulted her by calling her "dumb" (she was never taught the word 'dumb', so she assumed it was a synonym for 'smart'). She wises up however, though.

* DesignatedHero: Mike (and to a lesser extent, Greta)...Mainly due to their future actions (after the film) when they start mining on the Zambizi's home turf.

* TokenEvilTeamate: Bob is the villain but starts out as simply Mike's snarky, less virtuous friend, fellow pilot & companion.

** Subverted a bit by the fact that she hasn't really fully "Gone Native" and wants to be rescued. She does become best friends with Wanama, though.

* [[FakeNationality Fake Ethnicity]]: Mexicans and Filipinos as Africans? Hey, [[SarcasmMode if they're not white then they're all the same, right? RIGHT??]]
** Greta's Dutch, but she's played by an American who ''doesn't even bother with the accent.'' Surprisingly, Joel & the Bots don't comment on this.
