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.
