Funny fluff
25 September 2002 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

Hardly top-notch cinema, but very funny for what it is -- a light comedy about a straight man trying to be as sexually unrestrained as his gay neighbor. Certainly the best of the movies based on Ralf König comics. Well acted and fairly well cast, though the moving guy was just a pretty muscle-boy instead of the tough, rather frightening hoodlum of the comic. The dubbing of Kriemhild's singing voice wasn't very well done; the lip movements weren't even close to being in synch with the singing. But still very funny -- my sides were aching after the scene in the video booth in the sex shop!
