Director Slesicki is in Poland rather notorious than famous. Frankly speaking he worked very hard for such opinion. His sitcom "13 posterunek" ("Precint 13"), initially funny, slowly decayed into the kingdom of bad taste and stupid gags. The numero uno in this crap was Cezary Pazura, years ago good actor (brilliant as a strange polish chekist in Wajda's "Pierscionek z orlem w koronie") but now jerky imitation of Jim Carey. So is no surprise that another Slesicki's movie with Pazura in main role made me very distrustful. "Another stupid comedy with Pazura, oh no!" I said. But the movie is surprisingly well. It's scathing satire about the reality shows, especially Big Brother. Pazura plays a small rascal escaping from the revenge of his accidental lovers brothers and casted to the SHOW. He plays without imitating JC and reminds that actually he is real actor. I don't want to tell more about plot with some references to Agatha Christie, "April Fools Day", "Someone to watch over me" and even "Cape Fear". The movie was flop in Polish cinemas pre-rejected by people who don't want to see another "13 posterunek" and rejected by the disappointed "13 posterunek" fans.
