Trivia

Zdenek Sverák wrote the main role of fake waiter Dalibor Vrána with skilled comedian Petr Nározný in his mind. Director Ladislav Smoljak cast Josef Abrhám instead, because Nározný was typecast as hysterical hothead at the time. Director was afraid of disappointing the expectations of the audience. See more »

It is comedy. So sit down and have fun :)
27 March 2000 | by (Prague, Czech republic) – See all my reviews

I have no idea if this movie is translated and presented abroad. Probably no, because it is not so known. But I must say that it is one of the movies I really love.

Translation of title can be "Waiter - run away!". It is story of man who had financial troubles. He was married for several times and had to pay for several kids. He wanted to earn some extra money by playing in cafe. But one drunk guest (when he see him in jacket) suppose he is waiter and pay his bill to him. So the main hero find his chance - he goes through restaurants and acts that he is waiter and asks people to cash to him...

All the movie is full of sweet humor. It has also nice music.
