Storyline

Axel, a handsome young guy is always on the hunt for women although he already has a girlfriend, Doro. One day he is caught in the act with another woman by Doro and she quits the relationship and throws him out of her apartment. Seeking for a new home, Axel is introduced to Walter, a homosexual, who finds Axel quite attractive. Walter takes Axel to a gay party where they meet Norbert, who has a big apartment and is more than willing to let Axel stay for a while because he thinks he can seduce him. Meanwhile, Doro finds out that she is pregnant from Axel and now she tries to get him back, not knowing that he lives among homosexuals now. This gives room for a lot of funny incidents between the gay world and the straight world. But will Doro get Axel back or will he stay with Norbert instead?

This is a surprisingly funny movie!
7 December 2002 | by (savannah, ga, u.s.a) – See all my reviews

This is gem of a movie which does not lose any of its wit and charm with the passage of time. The fast pace and irreverence to social institutions kept us howling until our sides ached. Don't misunderstand me, however; the plot of one mans journey to his sexuality is pursued with fever right up to its hilarious climax! I would say that anyone of any sexual orientation with a sense of humor should watch this one with a friend or lover or both!
