Not Another Star Wars Parody!
26 July 2004 | by Nessie7See all my reviews

I was really frustrated when I found out that Bully (who wanted to make a Star Trek parody) did not bring one single joke about Star Trek in his new movie. He only used the characters he used in "Unser (T)Raumschiff" which was a parody of the classics of ST with "Captain Kork and Mr Spuck". In contrast to the short strips of "Unser (T)Raumschiff" he only used Star Wars jokes. These jokes would have been really good, if there had not been thousands of Star Wars parodies before. "Unser (T)Raumschiff" was not just famous because it's main characters were gay. But thats the only part of jokes, that were transferred to the movie. A mixture of Star Wars and other things (perhaps one single ST joke?) would have been OK but it is almost just the old jokes about Star Wars that aren't funny anymore.

Bullys last film "Der Schuh des Manitu" was really enjoyable. Bully produced honest situations whose honesty was broken in the next moment. Differently to "Periode1" you could not tell when and how (and about what) there would be the next joke. I think that Bully and Co wanted to make a popular and funny movie so baldy that they overdid it. It is a funny film but I expected more from Bully. It was also a disillusionment to notice that almost every song of the film was made by Stefan Raab. He might be a great man with great music. But EVERY SONG????? Bully is a great movie maker and I hope that there will be more of his films but I hope that someone brings him down to earth again before he starts with the next movie. The loss of realism and critical faculties combined with the compulsion to be popular were the reasons of Stefan Raabs dusk of popularity too. If the same happened to Bully, it would be very sad. The film is not bad. But the first thing that came to my mind when I watched it was: "Not another Star Wars Parody"!

Please excuse my language mistakes. Since I am German, I can not write in English like my own language.
