Zeki is looking for a job as a caretaker at the school. After he faked an alarm, he's getting the job interview with the school's headmaster. This is not possible in Germany because school caretakers are hired by the local authorities. Headmasters are working as a public servant for the federal state - they have no influence on hiring a man working for the local authority. See more »

I can honestly say I have never watched a German comedy before (Excepting Goodbye Lenin), but this was way better than expected. It's everything Bad Teacher could have been and more.
Firstly, it's genuinely funny - petty criminal becomes substitute teacher sounds weak but here the relationships and the script have a lot of zing and deliver.
Even though the arc is fairly by the numbers, the plot detailing is excellent, with fresh siutations and a strong romantic subplot. The cast are all on point and very likable, particularly the stars. All in all we liked it a lot - it's fun, consistently funny, has heart, and is definitely one of the better comedies of 2014.
