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...

Goofs

At the London bank Ochodzki tries to cash a check, but the clerk says he's on strike. Ochodzki doesn't understand, so he makes a call to a shop assistant for her to interpret. In the next scene there is the black girl saying "Let me speak to that guy", and the next one shows Ochodzki saying "You speak English? I can't figure out what the goddamn bloke's talking to me". Both scenes seem to be reversed in cutting process. See more »

Not as stupid as it seems
13 November 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

First time I've seen it, I didn't fully get the idea what this film is supposed to be about. Maybe a little bit funny, sometimes silly, but in overall, didn't make sense. At all.

But when you actually think about how life in Poland was at that time, and if you know somebody ( preferably from Poland ) who will guide you, you'll find this film hilarious and love it. It shows, very sarcastically though, how the life in Poland in early 1980s was, and how people were dependent on each other. I don't want to talk about it too much, but the score is 10 without doubts, and if you're looking for a clever foreign comedy, that's the one you should see.
