It's actually really difficult for a movie to be downright bad for its entire 90 minutes, but this television production from 6 years ago comes really close. There is no doubt that Simone Thomalla is one of the worst German lead actresses right now and actually for a very long time. I don't really know who is worse: she or Maria Furtwängler. But I have no clue how these managed to get on "Tatort". They both always play the same character and have no dramatic or comedic talent at all. The director of this movie here was actually fairly prolific back then already, so he is a perfect example how quantity is not the same as quality. He also co-wrote this film (usually he only directs) with two other guys. One of them worked on 2 television series before, the other never wrote a film, but is a prolific actor. And this lack of experience for all three of them really shows here. Whhat a mess of a movie. One example would be a scene where Thomalla's character says she will never ever sit on this motorbike and one second later she sits on it. Annd the film's title is a contender for worst movie title of all time. Love makes sexy? Wow... talk about real creativity here.
It's actually hard to believe Pierre Besson is related to Katharina Thalbach. Ither actors who show us their lack of talent in here are Matthias' Schweighöfer's mother, Florentine Lahme and Kai Schumann. But maybe the worst of the bunch was the one who played Thomalla's character's best friend. God.. she was disastrous. Then again they were all irreparably harmed be the terribly screenplay. Oh yeah, his clothes, hair and being a good listener of course means he is a homosexual. This film is packed with embarrassing stereotypes and cringeworthy sex references. Like most other Thomalla movies. It's hilarious yet sad to see how every 5 minutes, some male had to emphasize that Thomalla is very attractive. NO SHE IS NOT! She looks like crap with her pouty lips. Stop trying to make us think that. And stop trying to use younger men as love interest for her, only because one guy suffers from bad taste in real life.
This is a level that lacks class in every regard. It wants us to believe blow-job scenes under the table of the boss are funny. Or that drama means the boss' wife entering during these events. Also the pseudo-drama with Thomalla and her toy-boy oops I mean real love at the end was totally try-hard and unconvincing. And of course the (ex-)husband wants Thomalla's character back. After all she is such a stunning woman, right? Ugh.. I'm about to throw up. This film has it all: terrible acting, bad writing, predictable story. A prime example of a movie that is nothing but a big failure while trying to be funny. Not recommended.
