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".

Misses just as often as it hits
6 November 2006 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"(T)Raumschiff Surprise" is sometimes funny, sometimes hilarious but it is also embarrassingly stupid at times. It has some new jokes but what I found shocking is that some of the jokes were "borrowed" (from Austin Powers; Loriot,...). So really you have creative ideas and funny and original jokes but in the same scene you have old or plagiarized jokes and gags that are complete misses.

I like Bully and I think he is funny, loved "Der Schuh des Manitu". There was a huge hype around this movie and when I finally saw it I was disappointed as the movie did not deliver. About a year after watching it the first time, I watched it again and I laughed about 5 times and smiled maybe another 10 times. I remember laughing quite a bit the first time I watched it but even back then I found it disappointing.

This movie is not quite as bad as the IMDb-rating (5.4) suggests but way worse than the hype around it makes you believe it is. (Most of the time my ratings for a movie are below the IMDb-average so me rating it the same as the average voter while saying it deserves a higher score is not a contradiction. Hope you can follow.)

** 5.5/10 **
