Excellent Movie
7 December 2004 | by (St. Louis, MO USA) – See all my reviews

Well you all know how the old saying goes, "You can't please everyone". Apparently the other reviewer of this movie just doesn't like the kind of humor in this movie. I, however, enjoyed it. The movie is based on one of Ralph König's comics. Another movie that was based on another one of his comics was "Der Bewegte Mann". It was released in the U.S.A. under the title "Maybe, Maybe Not..." and stared Til Schweiger. Unlike that movie, this one has yet (as of this review) been released in the U.S.A. It's really a shame, because I know my non-German-speaking friends would enjoy it as much as I did. There are many funny scenes in this movie. One in particular (involving a sex shop and a container of buttermilk - or something along those lines - was so funny the first time I saw it, I was in tears it hurt so much). Perhaps it's because I read the comic first and knew what to expect and that allowed me to enjoy the movie as much as I did.

If this movie ever comes out dubbed in English, you can be sure I'll get my friends together to go see it. Definitely worth seeing.
