Vicco von Bülow,
In one scene Otto wants access to a premier show but gives the required password "The Magnificent Seven" to the wrong person. The person dryly responds: "Come back when you're with the other six dwarfs." Otto Waalkes went on to star in two "7 Zwerge" (7 Dwarves) movies. See more »
Otto Waalkes has his funny moments, but 80 minutes of him is a very big overdose. There are several parodies to enjoy, but the one on the Terminator seems to go on and on. Not extremely funny but very well done are the parodies on the jeans commercials; and this is may be the first film with Hell's Angels talking about Mozart's Requiem and the conducting style of Herbert von Karajan. Why the "Hitchcock music" by Bernard Herrmann had to be pirated for this comedy will probably never be cleared. In short: only occasionally amusing.
