The Austrian Alps, some years ago. While playing, young Türlich falls unconscious onto a duck nest and is carried away forever by the small river. Sixteen years later, Germany, in the Ruhrpott, to be exact: Orphan Türlich and his friend Josch are working their civil service, yet cause so much chaos that they decide to flee instead of being forced into the army. Türlich accidentally stumbles across some information about his origin and decides to go to Klein Ischgl in Austria. Upon arrival, Josch and Türlich find Ischgl to be a center for après ski parties, and drink hard to blend in. Klein Ischgl actually turns out to be a stone-age-like townlet (9 inhabitants) up the mountain, and Türlichs grandfather, who runs the place, even resists to electricity and indoor plumbing. While Türlich rediscovers his roots (and his affection for Heidi), Josch finds out that evil entrepreneur Tronald Dump plans to blow the mountain to smithereens in order to erect a plastic mountain with a ski resort ...

One of the worst
18 February 2002 | by asyxSee all my reviews

I happened to see this movie as a surprise preview and immediately regretted it: it was a total waste of time and money. This action-"comedy" features a kind of low-level humor that not even the Farrelly brothers can come close to. Story and characters are ridiculous and cliché-ridden to the hilt, so the only way to make it through the film (if you really have to) is following the saying "When in Rome, do as the Romans do": getting properly drunk before.
