Goofs

Doris and Dieter Dubinsky supposed to be from from Bitterfeld and speak with a saxonian accent the whole time. Bitterfeld is a town in Saxony-Anhalt where they don't speak the deep saxonian accent that they speak in most parts of Saxony. However it is a running joke for most comedians to speak with such accent when portraying characters from East Germany, no matter if they speak the accent in the region or not, therefore it is intentional.

Very enjoyable.
26 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

I thought I wouldn't like this , but it was surprisingly funny throughout and quite an original idea.The English names were particularly hilarious, as well as the somewhat familiar looking Butler.Obviously you won't know who all the actors unless you live in Germany,but that's not really vital information. You forget very easily that it's a foreign film as you get quite drawn into it. All in all it's one of the better spoofs that are out there now, compared to the Scary Movie trilogy whose writers seem to have run out of good ideas.It is well produced,with lighthearted humour and it makes a refreshing change from the usual Hollywood rubbish and I'm even thinking of getting it on DVD...
