NOT a story of a man who wakes up to find his scrotum missing!!! lol
6 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Who is editing these film descriptions to allow such an idiotic statement? We almost did not watch this movie because of the false description of the subject.

This is a fun road movie, with lots of capers. A divorced, warring couple are headed to Greece for the marriage of their daughter. Though traveling on their own, they inevitably bump into one another.

Their bickering though amusing, is not always humorous, as it hits home to how badly people can devolve in the treatment of one another. But on the whole the films is a series of mishaps, bantering, betrayals, reconciliations, all along a madcap road trip.

The first obstacle which arises is the eruption of the volcano in Finland which causes planes to be grounded in Europe, and their plane, on the way to Athens, has to land in Germany. Luckily they can rent a Porsche for 4 thousand Euros, but the Porsche has a mishap and the couple meet up with all kinds of characters, ride a variety of vehicles, not all with wheels on the ground.

The film kept our attention and was entertaining as well as informative with its barbs at the human condition, as comedies are meant to do. If you like road films, and light hearted, intelligent, if not at times absurd, story, you will have fun with this as we did.
