Nein!
10 December 2015 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Seven years prior to "Son of Hitler" Bud Cort made a name of himself as a morbid young man in "Harold and Maude". A cult semi-classic. In this muddy and very unfunny attempt to make black comedy out of the Fourth Reich arrival, Bud is Willi Hitler, son of Adolf. An illiterate woodcarver living in a quietly located cabin in the German highlands. Kidnapped by a right wing party führer. The name of this fascist movement; NEIN! "Never Encourage Intellectual Nonsense". The filmmakers are trying to create hilarious scenes without success. They try a whole range of secure sketches. We have seen it before. Much better. Extremely unfunny but with a great cast of characters.
