Trivia

The birthday song for Renate's mother is based on the classic Swiss song "Freut euch des Lebens" (Enjoy your life), written by poet Johann Martin Usteri (1793) and the composer Hans Georg Nägeli (1795). One year earlier, in 1990, the original version of the song was sang in the GDR movie 'Die Sprungdeckeluhr'. See more »

Goofs

When selling the scrubbing brush to Lohse the old couple mentions that they will give him cashback (Skonto) on specific ways of paying. However the term cashback in Germany is only used for the payment within a specific time period. See more »

Witty dialog and subtle humor
28 September 2000 | by cengelmSee all my reviews

Loriot(Vicco von Bülow) is possibly Germany's most wellknown comedian if we consider his comic books, his TV shows and his 2 films. His Prussian humor is unique and he prefers to be the pedantic gentleman who often struggles with tiny "errors" in his environment. "Pappa ante Portas" is the better of his 2 films where he plays a married man who disturbs his family because of his early retirement. Once again excellent his all time female companion Evelyn Hamann who plays his wife.

Overall rating: 9 (among the 5 best comedies of the 90s)
