Otto's third installment
3 April 2001 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

After "Otto-Der Film" and "Otto-der neue Film" this is Otto's third try to attempt laughters from the audience. This time he parodies series such as "Miami Vice" and films a big part of the entire move in American locations. This isn't the best Otto movie, but worth for some good laughs (even though it is really stupid). Watch out the cameo of German tennis player Steffi Graf.
