Storyline

Harry App is a private detective, but his office has a chronic lack of customers. The old lady Anni Rose offers him a deal which is lucrative and at the same time seems easy to accomplish. App needs to take the priceless breeding rabbit Mister Theo to Switzerland, where the animal will participate in a competition. The road to Switzerland is however more treacherous than App thinks.

Good if you want nothing else than to have fun
13 March 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

If you want entertainment with any deeper meaning, this is the wrong film for you. This movie is comedy and nothing else. If you know Dieter Hallervorden as an excellent artist from the political revue, you will be disappointed. The Hallervorden of the 1980s was a slapstick comedian who called himself "Didi" and made one film after the other with a similar plot.

But if you just want to have fun, perhaps when watching TV with your children in the afternoon, you will enjoy this. Most scenes are like in comics or cartoons, with gangsters, wild chases, explosions, breaking glasses etc. I give seven points.
