Storyline

Two criminal gangs are ruthlessly fighting for a 1-million dollar check that, purely by chance, got into the flat of shy high school teacher George Camel. As the number of victims sharply increases, Camel is mistakenly regarded as a mass murderer and cunningly uses his horrifying reputation to get the respect and heart of his beloved Sabrina, a journalist from a local newspaper. But this game turns out to be risky and in the end, both gangs don't hesitate to seize the check at all costs, including an improvised operation. Written by George Bush

Czech parody of Humphrey Bogart movies
1 October 2006 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

A very, very, very funny comedy. Some gags can be understood only by people knowing Czech language (like speeches of the toothless gang boss). One of my favorite comedies. Some actors played very good parts in the "Adventures of brave soldier Svejk": Police commander - policeman Brettschneider, lieutenant Dub Mr. Gogo - Palivec, sergeant Vanek etc. The final combat zone in the garage is also very fine. In that movie there are many shoots and murders but even the youngest children liked it. The main plot is the fight of two rival gangs (one from "Michigo", another from "San Bonigo") for a check and a quiet school teacher is found to be a pervert serial murder.
