Storyline

Vienna 1965. While visiting the Wax Museum a group of tourists stop in front of the figure of Prince Metternich. All of a sudden they find themselves brought back 150 years earlier during the Vienna Congress of 1814-1815. Before their eyes wide open, history is in the making. Gathered around the Tsar of Russia, Alexander I, the Kings of Bavaria, Würtemberg, Prussia and Denmark, are persuaded they are building the future Europe whereas they are being manipulated by foxy Chancellor Metternich, he himself under the thumb of cynical Count Talleyrand, the French representative. All those considerations come second though to partying and social life, which is all these aristocrats really want out of this congress... Written by Guy Bellinger

Trying

This movie is really trying hard to be funny. And while it portrays many historical figures incorrectly (very absurdly of course and very loosely based on the real people), this isn't as bad as it sounds. It just isn't really good either. The actors try too, but unfortunately they fail.

In the end it all piles up to the (probable) messy script ... if it wasn't the script it must have been the director. But I guess the material was too silly from the get go. Of course if you let loose you might get a giggle out of the vast amount of jokes here ... but then again, are you willing to lower yourself that much? There are better movies to do that for ...
