Best comedy of the last years ... and it's a German one !!
18 November 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

A man in love will marry his girlfriend but first he has to get a signed basket ball for her wayward son - but only handicapped fans have the chance to get one. Seems like the only way to get this ball is visiting a basketball match as a handicapped ... Really equal to Hollywood productions! One gag after another, finest slapstick, no sensitive humor but crashing gags the entire movie. Jürgen Vogel and Til Schweiger at it's best! Alexandra Maria Lara plays the "emotional" part - absolutely lovely! And Christof Maria Herbst has been the best handicapped nasty person at all!! And about piety of handicapped people

  • no gag at the expenses of disabled people! We've got a severely


disabled child and have been amused and laughing during the whole movie!

Absolutely recommendable!!
