A Feeling of happiness
8 August 2002 | by (Elmhurst, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Can you get any funnier this really shows people they we'rent just known in England but Germany as well. Imagine that they not only took time to look through the German landscape but also learned the language. Saturday night Live certinley would not go that far to do something like that. Real classic gems. I wish they would have made more of them.
