Storyline

Eduard, Otto and Heinz are identical triplets. Without knowledge of the others, the youngest of them uses an ad text of one brother and a melody of the other to compose a song for a pop-song contest. When he wins a cruise as the first price, the brothers enter a claim for it. So all of them go on vacation - with only one ticket. Even more confusion arises, when a detective on board sees through their game and suspects them to be a notorious gangster trio. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Fun with Heinz Erhardt
25 April 2002 | by PlanecrazyIkarusSee all my reviews

Heinz Erhardt was a genius. His short poetic funny verse jokes are incredible. Unfortunately, few of his movies benefit of the elegant and intelligent humour that he possessed.

This movie is one of the best to feature him, and for its time, it's even reasonably impressive on the special effects (having him play triple brothers in the same frame). The story is simple: Triplet brothers live in a flat, one is a poet, the other is a composer, the third is the maid for everything who cleans up behind the others and runs the flat. One day, the third (and youngest) brother steals a melody and a poem of his two elder brothers, mixes the two into a Schlager, and sends it to a contest, where he wins the first prize: A cruise. Unfortunately for him, his two brothers decide to tag along, resulting in lots of confusion and fun on the boat.

Old 1950s comedies aren't everyone's taste, but this is one I certainly liked a lot, and still do. The movie is carried by Heinz Erhardt delivering a good performance as three different characters. Too bad the dialogue does not have the same grace as his short verses, but it's still funnier than most his other movies.
