Trivia

The large, beer-filled, boot-shaped glass termed "Das Boot" in the movie served as the grand finale' of all of the drinking games. Actually "Das Boot" translates as "the boat" in English. "Der Stiefel" would be the correct German terminology for "the boot." Such "beer boots" are known as "Bierstiefel" in Germany. They are descended from the centuries old German soldier's tradition of accepting the challenge to drink beer out of another's boot. See more »

Stupid, Boring ....
21 January 2007 | by (Ulm, Germany) – See all my reviews

How much "Budweiser" must the producer consumed I asked me. Or have they drunk that, what they sad Germans would drink as babies? You know what I mean, that what come out of cows, they said.

The film was one of the greatest flops in the German theatrical history. Some screenings, no visitors. No wonder .... our real "beerfest's" are much better and more funny. We have very often nudes and chests of women on free TV or in summer, when we go swimming. So we don't need such films.

The film is good enough for the typical US-visitor who doesn't know anything about any country outside states. A country where drama breaks out when Mrs. Jackson showing her chest and everybody can buy guns to shot people.
