Storyline

Abahachi, Chief of the Apache Indians, and his blood brother Ranger maintain peace and justice in the Wild West. One day, Abahachi needs to take up a credit from the Shoshone Indians to finance his tribe's new saloon. Unfortunately Santa Maria, who sold the saloon, betrays Abahachi, takes the money and leaves. Soon, the Shoshones are on the warpath to get their money back, and Abahachi is forced to organize it quickly. Luckily, he, his twin brother Winnetouch, beautiful dancer Uschi and the Greek Dimitri each own a quarter of a treasure map that leads them to 'the shoe of Manitu'. There, Santa Maria already awaits them to take their new treasure away as well. But he did not think about the determination of Abahachi's team. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Very funny
23 April 2010 | by BluesImpSee all my reviews

Like the previous reviewer, I'm vacationing on Cozumel, Mexico and caught about 3/4's of the movie on TV. We were getting ready to head out the door and ended up staying in to finish watching the movie. We thought it was hilarious. Even though it was originally filmed in German, dubbed in English, and subtitled in Spanish, the plot was quite funny and the diaglouge was translated well. This is very much in the Mel Brooks zany style of comedy. If you can find it, it's definitely worth a watch. I'd also like to see more of Michael Bully Herbig's comedies. If they are as funny as this one, I'm sure I'll enjoy them also.
