Avoid this one
24 October 2003 | by (Jena, Germany) – See all my reviews

How comes talented people produce crap like this. There is a decent director (Bringmann directed the fine road movie "Theo gegen den Rest der Welt"), a good script-writer (Kahl co-wrote the sharp and witty "Wir können auch anders"), talented actors (Potente and Milberg were brilliant together (or apart) in "Nach 5 im Urwald") trying a remake of one of the best German comedies ("Die drei von der Tankstelle") and they come up with one of the worst movies of the decade. Ok, this was intended to be a vehicle to put Wigald Boning's TV comedy onto the big screen, but this does not excuse everything.

If you want to see a good movie, avoid this one and try one of the other films mentioned. If you want to see a bad movie, avoid this one as well as this is not even one of the "so bad it is actually good"-type. On the other hand, if you want to see the worst movie Franka Potente has ever starred in (and hopefully and in all likelihood will ever have starred in), this is the one to go to.
