After the casting credits Ingo reappears and tells what happens to the main characters after the film. See more »
This is a road film about three young men coming to grips with their thespianism and living proof that comedy is not merely a genre inflicted unilaterally by Hollywood on the rest of the world. Upping the ante after "Allein unter Frauen," this is the film that put post-reunification German comedy firmly on the map. For those of you open-container-deprived North Americans, this film is worth watching just for the scenes featuring the camaro-pilot "Bierchen" and for the use of the fine technical pleonasm "Fahrbier."
