I am not a person who believes in "family, love, morality". I make jokes about just about everything, always knowing how these are meant. This film however somehow made me think a little bit too much.
Sure, there are some REALLY good jokes in this film (I only saw the original German version and don't know anything about the translation). Most characters are sure to provide many good laughs. My personal favorite was the old man (Grandpa) with his great phrases.
There are on the other hand several "jokes" which go so far that they are no longer funny (IMHO). Sure, old people may become helpless and may have to live in special homes; but suggesting that they are only lumps of meat with snot constantly dripping from there noses is almost a direct insult. This is one example of several.
Generally this movie is worth seeing, a little more respect and good taste would have helped enormously.
