Storyline

Edward Kaminsky, an aging ad man, wants a golden parachute from his agency; he must first land the Opel auto contract. Rosa, a youth with wealthy parents, wants to establish herself as an artist. The clumsy and enthusiastic Viktor, not quite honest, wants work. When he wanders into Kaminsky's meeting with Opel and says something about irony, the Opel director wants him in on the campaign. Then he steals an idea from Rosa that the Opel director loves. Before Rosa discovers he's expropriated her idea, Rosa and Viktor become lovers. Father-son feelings materialize between Kaminsky and Viktor. Can the impulsive Viktor hold it together before Rosa learns the truth and flies away? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Sehr witzig! (Very funny!)
28 January 2004 | by tinskies03See all my reviews

I found that this movie was very light-hearted and hysterical. I am in the German Club at my school (being a German speaker) and found this movie to be one of the funniest I have seen yet. Simply wonderful. The story is good, the actors are convincing, and the end is strange yet happy. An overall enjoyable film!
