Otto loses his flat, because he could not pay the rent. To work off his rent arrears he is doing dirty work for the caretaker. Just now Gaby moves into the house and Otto falls in love, but Gaby has eyes only for Amboss the bodybuilder.
The fourth cinematic installation of the Werner series of Comic Books, which I personally anticipated most eagerly, did just what part three did - it disappointed. Although based on one of the best comic books in the entire series, it simply lacks the anarchistic style of any of the books, and that is not even mentioning that it has the same cineastic flaws that part three provided with. The storyline is not as catching as in part two, the directing doesn't create the kind of suspension or amusement that some scenes are simply cut out for, and the jokes (some new, many gathered from other comic books) appear watered down. Read the books or enjoy the second film, this one only barely manages to rise above the third one. One of the properly most eagerly awaited parts of the film, the second period of the infamous football game (or soccer for our American fiends), which starts the film off, doesn't match the sheer hilarity of the first period and is mostly just a combination of fecal jokes. As usual, Meister Röhrich makes his apearence as the most incompetent plumber in sanitation history, but you notice it for what it is - without Werner and Eckart around, his appearances thrown in every now and then, he is just filler for a script too short for an entire film.
The animation, heavy on computer animated elements, doesn't meet the high standard set by the otherwise simply bad third film and gives the animation a most inconsistent look.
While the second film was sheer brilliance, the first film was too hilarious and anarchistic do deserve worse than part two, Gekotzt wird Spaeter only barely manages to beat Fäkalstau in Knöllerup. I hope, and I pray, that there will be another film, ideally with a story as great as in Volles Rohr, equally good directing and animation - but considering that only one week after it's start, multiplex cinemas moved Gekotzt wird spaeter into the smallest theaters in the house, with the evening shows starting at kid friendly times before 8pm, that is doubtful. The final chance for Werner's greatness on the screen, what could have been the finest moment for the series, has been wasted.
