I don't usually go watch Swiss films. Although they are getting better... This one is not very Swiss at all and I found it very enjoyable. It was filmed in America and has an international cast. It's not the most original story, but it has a bunch of good laughs and an over all "feel-good" friendly feeling which I miss in most other films. It's a screwball comedy. Fast talking, not too serious: Four losers team up to help their other loser friend get the girl. The characters are lovable and the girl is lovely. What more do you want? And then somehow the Mafia also gets involved with Martin Landau as the clichéd "big boss". In the end it almost seems more like a comic book than a film.... but whatever: I enjoyed it.
