Did You Know?

Trivia

The original character name for the Earl of Cockwood was Earl of Fistfuck but the Bavarian Film Fund asked to change that. See more »

Goofs

The Earl of Cockwood denies knowing Smeerlap's company upon which Very Long tells him that, according to the business section of "The Times", the Earl is the major shareholder of that company. This is not possible because it was established earlier (the writing on the truck) that Smeerlap's company is a GmbH (similar to a LLC) which is a kind of company that is not owned by shareholders.

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
