Title says it all
30 March 2000 | by brainrippaSee all my reviews

Oh Otto, where are you going? After seeing the trailer, I wondered that his sense of humor didn't change in the last 20 years. That wouldn't be too bad if there were his typical jokes in this movie, but no chance. I can't believe that I smiled only once the whole time. Too much time wasted on the "story", which is really nothing special. And his girlfriend....I mean, she's a BOMB, but acts like being in a daily soap. Well, the SFX are great, but why in a comedy? Better make an action film with that. Finally, if you like Otto, see the first movie (a must see!) or part three, but this is really disappointing! 3/10
