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.

nonsense humor at its best!!
13 July 2004 | by Arschminister99See all my reviews

"der wixxer" is a beautiful nonsense-parody of the edgar wallace-movies with joachim fuchsberger and klaus kinski... okay, the point is: you have to be a fan of this style of film-making, like the movies of zucker-abrahams-zucker (top secret!, airplane!..etc.) or the movies helge schneider made. so, "der wixxer" is not a film for everyone...but i laughed through the whole because it has some very good ideas (think of the dices in the harbor-bar!! hilarious!!!) olli dittrich and bastian pastewka are very talented comedians...and they could make "der wixxer" just with their faces, if you know, what i mean. nonsense rocks!!!
