Storyline

Rufus Lindner finally made it - his first movie is in production. The story is quite simple: The Pope's underground agents have always deleted VIPs that were in the Vatican's way. Now, Kai Rabe is about to reveal all the crimes. He has to deal with sinister monks and secret agents. But one day, the leading actress is murdered. Rufus, the first-time director, has to deal with many problems now: His ever-drunk teen-idol Kai Rabe rents two Israelian bodyguards who shoot just a little too quickly, his reckless producer wants the show to go on, even after the second murder took place, his set is disturbed by an investigating policeman who falls in love with a beautiful actress who happens to be the playwright's sister. What's next? Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Trashy!
27 April 2003 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

While Knocking on Heaven's Door had a bunch of too serious moments trying to supply the movie with emotions, this second Thomas Jahn movie is an absolute pleasure because it's almost a parody. Every character is rotten, either a drunkard or a sex maniac. Nobody at the imaginary film set is talented but There's No Business Like Show Business, and it's all about the money.

Many surprising and ironic cameos of German TV and movie stars, many, many dead bodies and a lot of blood make this film (whose story is completely irrelevant) a very cool piece of trash. I wouldn't have been surprised if Leslie Nielsen had appeared. Kai Rabe is maybe the first (or just the best) German horror film parody.
