Storyline

The main character is the manager of a sport club, nicknamed "Teddy Bear" by his friends and acquaintances. One day he is detained at the border just as his sport team is off to a tournament - somebody has torn out a few pages from his passport. It occurs to him that perhaps his ex-wife has done so to get her hands on their joint account in a London bank. Therefore, he has to get to London as soon as possible in order to transfer the money to a different bank. The solution is a movie, made by his friend. The script requires a double role, thus the search for a character is announced. The double has to apply for the passport, and that is solved through a girlfriend who agrees to play dope's new fiancée. At the engagement party he is slipped a drug, and Teddy Bear runs off to the airport with the false passport. On the plane, however, he meets his ex-wife...

excellent movie!
5 February 2006 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

This is a must-see movie, only of its kind! Every scene is EXTREMELY comic! However, non-Polish people may have problems with understanding it. You cannot fully understand it, if you have seen it only once. Second time is better! And third! And fourth! Etc... I have seen this movie 20 times, or maybe more. And every time I was joking! And every time it was even better... :-) Some of the scenes seem to be completely nonsense, but in fact they are all based on real life in Poland in 1980's. And that's why it is yet more funny! There are a lot of jokes and gags, which seem to be absurd, but they are real-life jokes! You know - it's something like Monty Python in reality. :-)
