I just watched Snowboardaci after Raftáci and unlike the previous poster I found Raftáci much better, which is rarely the case for "second movies". While the humour in Snowboardaci was a bit childlish, approximative and hesitating, not to say tricky to understand in moments, I found Rafťáci much more accomplished and without any hesitation I classify it as a must-see, a masterpiece of simple and entertaining movie, fun and without any complex (to be underlined; unusual for Czech Republic) about teenagers taboos and nowadays's lifestyle. It is fun to watch even for a foreigner, even without subtitles, and the film not only entertains, but makes a great advertisement for the generous nature of this country, of the simplicity, the friendship of its inhabitants. Young people there still know how to spend a nice time in simple way, the film is an ode to their culture and Czech Republic in general.

way too long of a commercial spot

Raftaci is a weak sequence of the well known Czech teenage comedy Snowbordaci. While Snowbordaci were original and unique in some ways, Raftaci failed to bring new ideas and were limited to burden the audience with tons of in-movie advertising. This was probably the biggest let down of all. Certainly it is inevitable to use some brands in the movie, but this should only be used to support the story. It's fair to say that Raftaci made me laugh several times during the show, but the story itself was really cheap and the overall impression very condemning. The whole plot of the movie is based on one of the main character's inability to get laid due to different disasters which bring juice to the movie. As long as the movie sticks to this (not so original) plot it remains entertaining. However as I wrote earlier it is crowded with disturbing and meaningless presence of advertising. Final verdict: don't watch this movie unless you are a huge fan of "hidden" advertising in movies and are willing to pay for it..
