When Much Longer (Christian Tramitz) names all the former nicknames of Even Longer (Oliver Kalkofe), he also lists "Speckbulette" (lard meatball). That is a direct reference to a lawsuit against Oliver Kalkofe from 1995 when, on his show Kalkofes Mattscheibe (1994), he described the German Partysingers Klaus Büchner and Klaus Baumgart as "Schielende Klobürste und Freund Speckbulette" (squinting toilet brush and friend lard meatball). Baumgart felt insulted and sued Kalkofe for that. However, the district court of Oldenburg ruled in favor of Kalkofe. Later it was a PG campaign from Baumgart's management. See more »

In the theatrical version, you can see outtakes and the cast performing together with British band Madness while the end credits run. In the TV version you see the same but without the credits. See more »
More lamebrain jokes and sledgehammer slapstick in the worst tradition of German comedy, along with rampantly bad acting, terrible dialogue and a pseudo storyline on which to hang one weak gag after another.
Of course, the three comedians-screenwriters love what they're mocking and about every tenth joke is admittedly mildly funny in a guilty-pleasure way, but, all in all, it's strictly puerile and embarrassing nonsense without any sense of character and situational comedy.
Watch one of the sixties Edgar Wallace flicks instead. They're much funnier... unintentionally so.
