The story is a comedic soap opera: We have a husband (who expects to be imprisoned shortly for tax fraud), his wife (who has a mysterious twin sister) a house maid, her boyfriend, a police inspector (and his assistant, played by Hans Moser)... And all of them take on false identities, without the knowledge of each other's actions, to be allowed into a festival for the high society. And to convince some foreign prince attending that ball to give them money / oil-rich land / fame / love. Of course, they all quickly recognize each other, trying at first to avoid, later to confuse all the other present parties....
The story is bollocks, in short. And the humour is thinly spread (I can only remember 1 mild laugh during the entire movie). The music is typical Schlager-fare that belongs firmly into the 60s. And there is no excitement or delight in this movie.
I think not even kids will enjoy this one. Avoid.
