Who's your daddy?
2 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

It starts off pretty well (and somewhat annoying, but that can be overlooked, especially considering the title of the movie and the first scene we get expectation wise). But it's not going places you'd hope it might go or achieve goals it sets out to reach. And that is not as much the fault of the predictable story, but has more to do with the inability to convey emotions most of the time.

Matthias Schweighöfer seems to be a nice guy and he's very well liked in Germany. I reckon because of his personality and looks. It couldn't really have to do anything with his acting abilities (if you want to call them that). He's also directing this one and the behind the scenes videos show, that he can be energetic and crowd pleasing.

Since this is a German production, it does not skip on the sexual themes/nature of the subject. Something you should be aware of, even though the movie was rated "6+" in Germany, which only shows you how they rate those things here (and I'm saying this without criticism). Unfortunately the same does not apply on other "adult" themes. Watch at your own leisure, but be aware of the downfalls
