Bad taste comedy about Hitler and the rise of the Nazi's is not particularly funny, but worth a look for those who like very off beat or bad movies
12 December 2005 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

What is this movie? Its a weird weird comedy styled as a documentary about the rise of Adolf Hitler as well as the story of two brothers, one a magician and Nazi, the other an anarchist anti Nazi. It uses old footage, new footage and the mix of the two to create a bizarre, occasionally clever, but never laugh out loud funny comedy.

Frankly this is one of those so bad its okay films (good would be pushing it). The jokes run the gamut from clever, but not really funny to potentially offensive (dog concentration camps) but not really funny. Much of it is obvious to anyone who's seen any World War Two comedies spoofing Hitler. Its broadly played to mixed effect. The problem with the film is that the gags take forever to get to a punchline. It will be two or three minutes of not very funny set up for a joke that isn't funny...at least not in the way it was intended.(you laugh at the film not with it.) The poor structure of the film makes the film drag in the second half since it simply becomes the same slow paced set-up/punchline over and over again (and is so awful they had to create a couple of lovers separated by the war to help string out our attention). Its a film to laugh at not with.

I can't really recommend this film to most people, however if you like bad films, puny films or strange "what were they thinking" movies, I'd give it a look with the understanding that this is really at the edge of being a "watchable" film.

(The print of this film I saw bore the title 'Loggerheads" and was dubbed into English and had Greek subtitles)
