In 2043, Frank and Xaver have only one big problem with their jobs at a patent office, their boss Dr. Kneitz who's mission it is to make their life miserable. But then an unique opportunity presents itself when an inventor shows up to patent a time machine and they come up with a plan to travel back in time to stop the conceiving of their boss. Accidently Ronny, a night watchman, happens to be in the room with them when they use the time machine and so, in part unwillingly, the 3 of them travel to the year 1988 in Gran Canaria and they only have a couple of days to stop every interaction with potential fathers for the mother to be.

so much fun
18 January 2002 | by (Gotha, Germany) – See all my reviews

This film is very, very funny. It's one of a very small number of films I've seen more than twice. I'love it. It begins in the future in a german patent office. An inventor has developed a machine that makes it possible to travel through the time. Frank and Xaver (employees at the office) want to use this possibility to avoid the siring of there bad boss what has happened on the canarian islands in summer 1988 to get rid of him. They use the time machine and due to some circumstances Michael Winslow happens to join them on their trip. They find the lady they assume to be the mother of their boss quickly and follow her. She's of course one of the most beautiful women and everybody wants to have her what makes it nearly impossible for our friends to find out who might be the one to "make" her boss. They undergo many adventures to finally change the future..... They take care for the wrong woman. Michael Winslow meets the future Mother while separated from the others and does not get to be in the right place when their time on the canarians is over. He'll be the father of there bad (and now colored and as funny as his (well known) father) boss.
