Perhaps the only time an Austrian movie reached the greatness of British humor
9 May 2007 | by SuperunknovvnSee all my reviews

After just watching "Muttertag" again for the first time in years I am stunned by how great it really is. Almost every line of dialog has become a classic catchphrase. You know the movie by heart, because it's getting quoted all the time in Austria - and rightly so! "Muttertag" is not just hilariously absurd, it's also an accurate portrayal of the people living in Vienna's suburbs with all their typical quirks.

Alfred Dorfer, Andreas Nowak, Roland Düringer, Eva Billisich and Andrea Händler play various roles and they all play them to perfection. Düringer and Dorfer, of course, went on to become the most popular Austrian comedians, starred in a lot of other movies and even managed to put a successful sitcom on Austrian television. However, they never achieved the greatness of this movie again and no other Austrian comedy ever did.

"Muttertag" is really a fluke. It has influenced a whole generation and will always remain a classic. Can someone in Austria please make another movie as original and funny as this one?
