The script was written by Dieter Hildebrandt, a sharp and still active satirist. The script surely has a satirical base and there is funny witticism on the German economic miracle (Wirtschaftswunder) of the fifties, but it is all toned-down for mainstream use and as the film progresses the satire more or less dies out.
What in the end remains is a pleasant, well-paced comedy, with good cast (even Marika Rökk is funny). There are couple of nice and simple songs, sung a.o. by Conny Froboess, one of my favourite singers when I was still a boy.
