Trivia

The videogame Gunther plays in the Apartment is Super Mario Bros. 3 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. This is one of two movies that previewed the game. See more »

Goofs

When Gunther is stealing his car back from the car show, he is being shot at and jumps out of a huge window. When he lands outside the window, the passenger-side light is clearly damaged, and falls out. However, in the next shot, the car is in mint condition, the light still in place, and the windows (which were shattered in the shooting) are also intact. See more »

Crazy Credits

When the credits finish, we see that "Vince" (James Tolkan) is still tied in the chair and he says, "come on guys, come on". See more »

Are you kidding me???
8 April 2005 | by (Chattanooga, TN, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie was bad. Painfully bad. I am one of the ten or so people who actually saw this in the theater. I went with two friends on opening night and we were the only three people there.

The first hint that the movie was bad was the premise: An East German inventor creates a car that runs on potatoes--or as he continually calls them "tubers." After the Berlin Wall falls, he moves to the U.S. to try to sell his invention.

Most of the movie consists of painfully obvious "fish out of water"-type jokes. My assumption is that every actor and crew member who worked on it took the money and ran to cash their checks as quickly as possible.

Avoid this movie like the plague. Please. Your brain will thank you.
