Amazingly unfunny.
29 July 2004 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Somehow this movie didn't manage to make me laugh ONCE. I liked the original skits in the TV series so maybe 87mins of Kork & co are just a tad too much. The best scenes are the ones you can see in the ads on TV, the rest is just plain silly and boring.

The effects are rather good showing an unusual high production standard for a German movie, but that's about all good I can say about this movie.

I can't make out what kind of humor this is supposed to be. I was looking for more than a couple of gay jokes. Go watch Jay & Silent Bob if you want to see something funny :)
