Trivia

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 »

Lighthearted fun for those who understand it.
15 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a fun movie. It's not to be taken seriously, and anyone who does will be disappointed. It's supposed to be a humorous take on the Trabbi and East/West Germany. Lighten up, folks. If you really know what's going on, you'll appreciate the subtle jokes more.

I'd MUCH rather watch this again than Eurotrip, which was just a blatant take on American's view of Europe. Driving Me Crazy was refreshing and silly with mild historical undertones.

Please, give this film a chance. I really enjoyed it and the people I showed it to did as well. This is a good movie to show a German class for a fun movie day or something.
