Goofs

Doris and Dieter Dubinsky are supposed to be from Bitterfeld and speak with a Saxonian accent the whole time. Bitterfeld is a town in Saxony-Anhalt where the population doesn't speak the deep Saxonian accent which is spoken in most parts of Saxony. However, it is a running gag for most comedians to speak with such an accent when portraying characters from Eastern Germany, no matter if they speak the accent in the region or not, therefore it is intentional.

User Reviews

to me a most funny & lovely hommage!
27 May 2004 | by DerWixxerSee all my reviews

Hi!

I also can only recommend this movie - not only to fans of the (main) actors but even more to those who love the old Edgar Wallace-movies.

I think that several jokes cannot fully be understood without knowing them - the criminal Kermit itself is a hit but the joke works even better when you know the original movie-title "Der Frosch mit der Maske" (The Frog With The Mask). What also pleased me very much was how some of the original characters have been imitated - behind Smeerlap I always saw Klaus Kinski,

Oliver Kalkofe is a perfect mixture of Joachim Fuchsberger and Heinz Drache and Bastian Pastewka spreads the same charme as his "original" Eddie Aren't.

This is not just kiddin' the old movies (as less as "Der Schuh des Manitu" is just kiddin' Winnetou, even if Pierre Brice still hasn't perceived it yet) - for me it is a loving hommage to these old movies.

And more over I'm glad to see that good German comedy is rare, indeed, but not dead!

Once there was a movie "Der Hexer", now there's "Der Wixxer". And once there was a movie "Neues vom Hexer" - can we expect "Neues vom Wixxer"? I would appreciate it very much!

Cheers
