Hilarious. A must-see...
2 February 2004 | by glynnorSee all my reviews

I've watched this film a number of times, and it never ceases to amuse. The

characterizations are excellent, the story is funny, and the dialog, (despite what another reviewer says) is hilarious. It helps, I suppose, if you speak German and can hear the nuances in that language... I don't know if reading the subtitles alone communicates quite the same way. But, I see this as a classic and long for the day when it comes out in a DVD that's playable in the States.
