Silly
26 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

There are many reasons, why I (and many others) shouldn't like the movie. It's really silly, has many cliché's and is really over the top as much as that is possible. But in all the silliness and somewhere in-between the good, the bad and the ugly (jokes), I could find myself being entertained.

And after all, this is what the movie tries to achieve. Entertain. Of course, since I do speak and understand Greek, I do get the jokes, so I can't say what experience a dubbed or subtitled version will be. Some jokes are more than only for locals. But I think the overall silliness comes across pretty clear. This is not sophisticated humor, so don't expect that.

Talking about expectation: I haven't seen the original (or it's too long since I have), that's why I can't compare the movies with each other. But another user wrote, that some lines of dialogue got used again and the overall feeling was the same. Maybe in 50 years from now, there will be the next remake ...
