Storyline

Two brothers both of which can neither read nor write making their way across Germany in order to claim to their inheritance. On their way they meet Viktor, a deserted soldier of the sowjet red army and Nadine, a beautiful young woman. Later an incident with some highwaymen, which can be solved easily with Viktor's kalashnikov, they become accused for murder - something they had neither intended nor realized. They claim Nadine to be their hostage, fleeing police forces until they reach the coast. Written by Oliver Heidelbach

Where Stan and Ollie in WAY-OUT WEST travel west Kipp and Most who come out of a home for mental handicapped here travel east. On the road - this is supposed to be a road movie - they get involved in many episodic adventures. Pace is so slow that you won't lose track for sure. I never laughed and I didn't even know where the jokes could have been hidden. The only funny moment was when the lead said "Wir koennen auch anders". For me a waste of time.

Dialog is poor and production values, too. The lead actors manage to deliver a weird impression. For fans of DUMB AND DUMBER and maybe Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy this one is worth a try.

3 / 10.
