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 »

nice comedy/crime movie
16 July 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

First I would like to say it's a comedy for sure. But I would also add the genre crime to the movie.

In this movie there's a guy playing a fake waiter. That's not his only crime though. But the other crime is more in a moral way. But i'm not gonna spoil for you what that is. But basically these two "crimes" play a mayor part in this movie.

If you have a chance to see it be sure to grasp that chance. It's not a superb comedy, but a nice little comedy. There are enough jokes to keep you amused during the movie.

Greetings from the Netherlands.
