Cab driver Frank Faust manages to finally scare his girlfriend Jennifer away at the tenth year Highschool reunion. Unfortunately, he never intended to do so. A year later, Frank still has not overcome the problem and tries to commit suicide. At the last Moment, the Devil himself appears and offers him a deal: Frank's soul in exchange for a sinister plot to get Jennifer back. Frank accepts and Mephisto reveals that he is actually Mephisto Jr., and that Frank Faust is a descendant of Doctor Faustus (from the classical play by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe). Therefore, the Mephistos always come to help the Fausts in situations like these. Anyway, Mephisto tries to get Jennifer's attention to focus on Frank by transforming into different local celebrities and showing up on important parties with Faust. Unfortunately, Mephisto Jr. also starts discovering his own sexuality and develops some unpredictable interests, and soon nobody knows what's going on anymore. Written by

Not Something Hollywood would do, but something Hollywood would copy/rip-off
Crass, homophobic and yet so charming, not something Hollywood executives would give the go ahead on without major revision in order to make it audience friendly and thereby more dull.
It tells the story of Frank Faust who is willing to sell his soul in order to win back his maiden. However the pact with Mephisto's son is not honoured by Mesphisto Junior in a twist of sexual awakening. And even Poppa Memphisto gets to join in the shenanigens.
It's a film that you either love or hate depending on your view of life. It's fun, it's light-hearted, the acting is spirited, the pace is brisk.
Plus you get a stream of German celebrities from boris becker to claudia schiffer to laugh with, as they play themselves
