Bavarian comedian Gerhard Polt caricatures a German family on their vacation in Italy. The beer-bellied father and his wife, their spoilt son and the old couple in the adjoining deck-chairs; they spend each day on the same spot on the same beach, day-dreaming, leaving their junk in the sand and making racist comments about Italians. After all Italy would be a perfect place without the Italians... Written by Lutz van Hasselt <willwink@pool.informatik.rwth-aachen.de>

Keine Ahnung warum ich mir das angesehen habe.

Ich erkenne keinen Humor und auch die komischen Traumsequenzen nerven am Schluss nur. Das einzig coole ist Günther Jauch als Radiosprecher.
