One of the funniest German movies ever made
10 November 2003 | by (Cologne, Germany) – See all my reviews

Now this is the movie you would like to watch if you're interested in what German comedy movies are all about. The fine thing about this movie from the 80s is that it works on two levels. First you can watch it as a slapstick comedy and you will greatly enjoy Didi Hallervordens very own way of messing up offices and business meetings. But the movie is also a very clever piece of satire about business managers and their way of talking and behaving. That's the reason why I loved this movie as a kid and I'm enjoying it even more when I watch it now. Obviously Dieter Hallervorden had a great time making this movie. His acting is simply superb, both as clumsy barkeeper Bruno Koob and as the cold and cynical businessman Hans Immer. The script is one of the funniest in German movie history and the story (taking a lot of surprising turns) manages to keep suspense at a high level throughout the whole movie. You won't meet a single German that grew up in the 80s who can't quote some lines from this German movie classic.
