I absolutely agree with Bjoern Kahlenberg's comment on this film. But unfortunately, no-one who's not speaking German will ever understand the humor of this film, or find anything funny about it.
Now that the film is finally published on DVD, I was able to watch it with the English-dubbed voices. The dubbed version doesn't only suffer from maybe the most uninspired dubbing-speakers ever. No, the worst thing is, that the English text doesn't't have any similarities to the German content. And so absolutely every gag, especially those lines me and my friends quote from time to time, is destroyed. Too sad, it's not only the "play-on-words"-lines. If you can't speak or at last understand German, please don't watch this movie. You'd get a absolutely wrong impression of German sense of humor. Well, maybe you can watch it without sound and laugh about the slapstick.
