Embarrassing for Germany
6 September 2004 | by lidercSee all my reviews

A rather dull brew that Bully (the name says it all) has concocted here: Old jokes with a really really long beard are recycled into a wannabe original Star Trek spoof. Directing and acting are mediocre at best and most of the time just pathetic.

That the movie hides his potential homophobia behind the slogan that the grossly stereotypical gay characters are 'likable' and 'nice' is a rather cheap trick. It would have been really original if the 'gay' characters aren't gay after all, debunking the myth of the effeminate gay man. That a small part of the gay 'scene' in Germany embraces this movie as a positive portrayal of gay men on film shows nothing but their superficialness and ignorance of the normal/ordinary gay men that are definitely tired of the stereotypes pushed on them or the portrayal of gay men as a monolithic group. As another reviewer pointed out, the portrayal of 'the gay men' in the German media nowadays doesn't reflect the diversity of them at all, they are just normal men doing whatever they have to do after all. The way this movie shows anal intercourse as *the* gay sex and makes silly jokes about it is simply pointless, embarrassing and silly. Frankly, just look at the effects movies like this may have on the self-image of gay youth.

That another German low-level toilet-humour comedian, Mr. Raab, is part of the movie doesn't surprise me at all. To show this movie as a great German comedy is simply embarrassing for Germany - or it proves that the stereotypes concerning German humour are either embraced by the German media or not that wrong after all. On the other hand they maybe wanted to go for it and remake one of those silly Hollywood comedies - they shouldn't waste their money like that. When reading the news one wonders whether the huge amount of money spent on this movie may be needed elsewhere. And if you want to watch good comedies in German, go and watch some Austrian ones.
