Did You Know?

Trivia

Both "Manta, Manta" as well as "Manta - Der Film (1991)" were cash-ins on the then-popular "Opel Manta"-jokes. See more »

Goofs

The Manta from the lake has a front grille with a double air intake, so it was produced before facelifting in 1982 but the Manta used in other scenes has a quadruple air intake, so it's a newer model. See more »

Great fun when you're 30+
25 October 2007 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is one of my all time favorites. Growing up with the Opel Manta as the car to have, I've even owned a few my self. One of my buddies actually bought "Berti's " manta from the film.

Anyway. The movie is extremely goofy, and Germans don't always know how to put in funny elements into a film. That taken aside the movie is still goofie. But think back. 1991! What kind of close did you where back then, and what colour was your hair ? And then there is the whole Manta Manta thing.. Thats why the movie is worth to watch. It actually has some car chases that are quite good, and the guy doing the stunts eventually came to do some of the car stunts on The Fast and the Furious.

The scene where Berti's Manta drives under a lorry was replicated some 10 years later in TFATF..

For me this movie is a walk back memory lane. The movie might be a eye roller if you're under the age of 25, or over the age of 45 but the ones that remember the late 80's and early 90's will definitely get a good laugh or two :o)
