HEINZ ERHARDT FUNNY IN EXHAUSTED STORY
27 April 1999 | by J. SteedSee all my reviews

This Heinz Erhardt vehicle has only Erhardt himself and his 5 charming daughters as main attractions, with Erhardt in good form in very funny scenes. But the story is exhausted after only half the film is over and the directing of Erich Engels does not do anything to liven things up; and that means the viewer is just waiting for a next scene with Erhardt.
