Occasionally funny thanks to the supporting cast
4 May 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

The literal translation of this 110-minute movie (unusually long for a non-Schweiger comedy) is "No sex is not a solution either". Horrible title, really, but you have to blame the writer of the original novel for this one. She also has a little cameo in this film. The film's director is Torsten Wacker, a fairly experienced television series director (comedy and drama). The lead actor here is Stephan Luca and if you are a bit familiar with German television, you will certainly have come across him. Luca is basically the perfect example of an actor with little range who keeps starring in pseudo-drama or terrible romance movies. Or in short: If you see his name in the cast, better stay away. This was one of his few attempts to become a big screen actor, but, of course, was back to television quickly. However, even with him forgettable as always, this film has its strength. The supporting cast is a mix of renowned German actors and familiar faces from the German entertainment industry: Rohde, Reinhardt, Harfouch, Fernandes, Kretzschmar, Anna Thalbach (Katharina's daughter), Elsner, Woll, Mierendorff and Michael Kessler (almost unrecognizable) are all fairly known in Germany and the two who play the friends of the protagonist are not unknown either, even if their names are not that famous. The female lead is played by Marleen Lohse. I have to admit, I am not too familiar with her as an actress, but in terms of looks, she is a great addition for the film and she also plays her part not solid. It's not written interestingly at all, but she sort-of makes the most of it.

The script is sometimes pretty good, sometimes pretty bad. But I guess you cannot hope for a great screenplay if one of the writers mostly worked with very overrated comedians like Gaby Köster and Atze Schröder in the past. And now also with Stephan Luca. One of the worst lines was "For this smile, I would even do without a couple seconds of sex with her. If I have to." There are more like these. If the script had been better, this could have been an actually entertaining comedy. I don't know how close they stayed to the novel, but you cannot blame the original writer (Mia Morgowski) as the duo who adapted the novel could still have done without cringeworthy quotes like the above. On a completely random note, in the context of the subplot of Thalbach's character, there are also some football references related to the St. Pauli team. All in all, this film makes a decent watch and has funny moments here and there, unfortunately not too many and it is by no means a great movie. Not even close.
