A dumb script (which culls its basic plot idea from Erich Kästners 1920s classic, "Emil and the Detectives"), bad acting, fake accents, execrable direction, terrible camera-work, ridiculous special effects and poor dubbing make this appalling would-be comedy - about a fat little country girl trying to make it big in the city where she befriends an ugly, talking pug - a painfully tough turkey to sit through, even for certified aficionados of bottom-of-the-barrel trash and/or demented four-year-olds. I sincerely hope there are countries where people responsible for green-lighting and spending a few cool millions of radio license fees, i.e. viewers' hard-earned cash, on such a relentless piece of crap will eventually wind up before a firing squad. Unfortunately, Germany's not one of them.
