We gave it a C+

A watered-down Out of Africa, I Dreamed of Africa showcases Basinger as a European socialite who discovers her resilience when she takes over a ranch in Kenya with her adventure-crazed new husband. Despite its veneer of based-on-a-true-story respectability, the film is a guilty-pleasure cocktail of exotic scenery, go-girl melodrama, and fab safari fashion. C+
