This is one of the funniest movies i have ever seen. Helge Schneider is surely the funniest German alive, and beside that a very talented jazz musician. But many people - as you can see in some of the other comments - do not share this opinion, because they feel that Texas is a complete mess, weird, ridicilous, silly and because they had no idea when to laugh and why. And they are completely right. This makes Monty Pythons Holy Grail look like a densely plotted, conventionel costume drama. Amazingly, Helge went on to direct and star during the following years in several much more wild, more dadaesque, yes more schneideresque movies than Texas, which was his biggest hit in Germany so far. You can enjoy all his work if you - don't try to analyze, don't search for a deeper meaning -if you love the absurd - and only if you are a native german speaker, i am sorry. Helge's art uses new words, misplaced words and sentences, new combinations of words, old words with new meanings etc., laconic slapstick and a downright funny appearance. So i am kind of a fan. And don't trust any comment that starts with:"Fans love it, anyone with brains hate it..."
