It's nothing new that Polish mainstream cinema lies dead in the gutter. Movies like Wyjazd Integracyjny or Ciacho showed that Polish audience has zero expectations when it comes to entertainment and will pay to see absolutely anything. That sad fact encourages directors to search for the absolute bottom of bad taste and nonsense. They are wondering if it is possible to make film so cheap, so unfunny, so lacking any substance and generally so bad that even Polish audience will say "no way". After seeing Kac Wawa I believe that they might have succeeded in their quest.
I am not even sure where to start. First of all, this "comedy" is totally unfunny. There was maybe one scene when a shadow of a grin appeared on my face, but that definitely wasn't worth almost 100 minutes of torture.
Acting is nonexistent - it looks like the director found some mentally challenged people, put them in front of a camera and told them to act funny. There is not a single good performance, all characters are dim, viewer has absolutely no one to relate to.
Everything in this movie looks extremely cheap. CG looks like something from the 90s. Almost whole movie is shot in interiors so it looks like 100 minutes long Polish sitcom that takes place in a brothel. I guess that the director tried to put some luxury into this film by renting a limo for a few shots (wow, he must have paid $100 or so), but it didn't help anything and made it look even more stupid.
Plot lacks any sense and is an insult to a viewer's intelligence. I know that it was supposed to be a comedy, but there is certain point of nonsense that shouldn't be crossed. So for example we have a scene where the main character chases a prostitute. Suddenly he starts shooting in her direction (wow, a bit excessive but whatever; terrible CG by the way) when passing a café and no one of customers gives a damn
they are just sitting and don't even look at the shooting. Yep,
shoot-outs are pretty common in the center of Warsaw, tourists stay out. Oh, and there is a short rape scene - that's right, rape is always funny. But don't worry, it came out that the guy raped his wife because he thought she was a prostitute so everything was fine and funny... Guys who visited a brothel didn't get laid, despite spending a fortune on... WC. It makes perfect sense - I guess that's why people go to these places. After seeing this film I sure as hell won't visit any brothels - this movie made a better man. I could go on, but there is no point in that - the whole script is retarded.
All in all it is a cheap and unfunny (or even depressing) rip-off of Hangover, set in Polish reality. The only good thing about this movie is that it was a major flop and it helped me restore some faith in good taste of Polish viewers (but not much). I simply cannot imagine film worse than this piece of crap. Don't watch it even when someone pays you to.
