Nice movie about two german guys using a remotecontroller to "jump" into movies

it´s just fun. i don´t know if where is an english dub of this movie. it´s german comedy of the early 80ies.

the story is very funny: two guys using their remotecontroller to take part in videomovies like indiana jones...
