Storyline

Gossip-columnist Ludo finds himself sentenced to three-hundred hours of community service after he literally crashes a private celebrity party. The work is at a children's day-centre and while the job's fine it is his bad luck that the person in charge is a woman whom he used to play endless practical jokes on when they were at school; she hasn't forgotten and is prepared to use her new-found power to get her own back. She finds however that, like the children, she's warming to him. If only the court injunction had stopped his womanising too. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Trivia

After protests from parents and politicians concerning some dialogue scenes, in January 2008 the FSK raised the rating from "Not under 6" to "Not under 12" (which actually does NOT avert children between 6 and 12 to see the film, they must just be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian).

Surprisingly awful
27 March 2010 | by nage-3See all my reviews

I was bored by this unconvincing "movie" at its 30th minute but kept on watching only because of Nora. What is bad about this film is German humour (officially known as the worst thing that Germans created), totally improbable situations and undeveloped characters and most important - easy fairy tale-style script that could be appreciated only by teens, which spend all of their time hanging in a mall.

It is one of the poorest attempts to visualise human relationships that I've seen in quite a long time.

At least there are some nude shots of Nora. But this is totally not enough.

If someone is searching for good German recent movies check Faith Akin's work.
