Storyline

The main character is the manager of a sport club, nicknamed "Teddy Bear" by his friends and acquaintances. One day he is detained at the border just as his sport team is off to a tournament - somebody has torn out a few pages from his passport. It occurs to him that perhaps his ex-wife has done so to get her hands on their joint account in a London bank. Therefore, he has to get to London as soon as possible in order to transfer the money to a different bank. The solution is a movie, made by his friend. The script requires a double role, thus the search for a character is announced. The double has to apply for the passport, and that is solved through a girlfriend who agrees to play dope's new fiancée. At the engagement party he is slipped a drug, and Teddy Bear runs off to the airport with the false passport. On the plane, however, he meets his ex-wife...

About movie & jokes in it
10 November 1999 | by bartpaculaSee all my reviews

Mis is a very good movie. It's not just funny - It's more than funny. I wish You saw that. The only problem is some of the jokes in that movie are understandable for Polish speaking people only. This movie is strongly placed in the '81 Polish reality.
