Best Comedy for ages
9 March 2006 | by mcblackSee all my reviews

Absolutey awesome. the handyman is the best comedy since years. In matters of swiss films, it is the funniest movie since "HD-Läppli" from the fifties. Handyman contains a lot of jokes from different sections. Nevertheless it is a very entertaining movie. Unlike most comedies, there isn't a sequence where you get bored. Very, very recommendable. Marco Rima himself is fun, if you only look at him. for swiss people, and for those who understand the different swiss dialects, it is very nice, that there are a lot of different dialects within this movie. also the special guest DJ Bobo has, very unlikely for him, a funny part in it. Very entertaining, and also very true, the movie shows, that the Germans are a lot different to us swiss people. No offense meant.
