Three hundred years in the future, Mars is colonized by humans and their leader Regulator Rogul plans to conquer Earth. Queen Königin Metapha is advised to send the gays Captain Kork, the Vulcannette Brigitte Spuck and the engineer Schrotty from the Surprise to the past in an experimental time machine to destroy the spaceship that human discovered in Area 51 in 2004 and avoid their technological knowledge in spacecrafts. She summons the trio and the taxi driver Rock Fertig Aus brings them to the meeting but Rogul attacks Earth. In the havoc, Kork, Spuck, Rock and Metapha travel to the past but they are hunted down by the evil Lord Jean Mau. Now the only hope for the human race depends on the success of their mission.

Trivia

Claims to be the first democratically chosen movie. After the great success of Manitou's Shoe (2001)'Michael "Bully" Herbig' let the viewers of his TV-show Bullyparade (1997) decide which subject his next movie should have. The viewers could choose between "Der Schuh des Manitu 2", "Sissi - Wechseljahre einer Kaiserin" (later made as Lissi und der wilde Kaiser (2007)), "Ein Film, wo keiner mit rechnet" and "(T)Raumschiff Suprise".

A German "Spaceballs" and more...
15 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Yeah, so, I'm not German (though I do speak it)...

The humour is not inherently German (i.e. there is some!), but it is funny. Very, very funny. Bully started with "Der Schuh des Manitu", and that was a poor German ape of Blazing Saddles... but this is different. For a start the special effects make you wonder how Star Wars I-III managed to spend their significantly larger budget. They're good. There's something almost British about the comedic understatement and dead-pan delivery. A knowledge of colloquial German is useful though.

The "icon" of the movie, the gay trio of Kirk (Kork), Spock (Spuck) and the other one (it isn't clear which Star Trek character he's meant to be), is the weakest point of the flick, but fortunately it is a minor intrusion. There is plenty of wit, spoofing and entertainment besides. Til Schweiger is excellent - a German Bruce Willis, maybe? Perhaps, as an Auslander, I find this movie more endearing than I should, but I highly recommend it.

Mopsgeschwindigkeit!
