Incredibly awful movie - so bad you HAVE to watch it
7 December 2007 | by (Coblence, Germany) – See all my reviews

Thomas Gottschalk and Mike Krüger became huge stars in Germany in the 80s by hosting a radio show. They had such chemistry on the radio that somebody must have thought it would be a great idea to put them on a screen. So the "Noses Movies" (German: "Nasenfilme") where born. You might take a guess where that kind of title comes from. All these movies like "Piratensender Powerplay" oder "Die Supernasen" are 100 % badly done slapstick productions.

It's a shame that "Die Einsteiger" actually has a pretty good idea for a plot - a scientist discovers a machine that allows you to jump into a movie - but the screenplay is absolutely awful. Maybe the worst dialog I have ever seen. And it's also a shame that this movie had a pretty hight budget. They could have done so much with the idea and the budget, but they failed in every possible way.

I would not recommend this movie at all, one exception being made: When you are having beer and pizza with some friends and you want to see a really, really bad movie to make fun of.
