Trivia

Most successful German movie of all time with 14 million viewers. Another contender is Der Schuh des Manitu (2001) with 12 million viewers. Since records about viewer's attendance weren't kept in the GDR, the estimated number of 14 million viewers could be ambiguous. After all, Otto - Der Film (1985) had 11 million approved viewers in West Germany, making Der Schuh des Manitu (2001) technically more successful. See more »

Goofs

Before Otto signs the credit contract, Shark turns over the first page of it. In the next shot (from a different angle) he turns the page over again. See more »

Otto's first and for a lot of Otto fans the best
3 April 2001 | by andreas_brudererSee all my reviews

After a bunch of stand-up live programs, it was the time for Otto Waalkes, a popular comedian in the late 70's and early 80's to move to the big screen. The result is a film without the smallest amount of acting ability but with a huge lot of gags and parodies. Even though I think "Otto-der Liebesfilm" is better than the first one, I like it and can it see over and over again.
