Storyline

Christopher, 31, tolerably good-looking but frustrated single and proud owner of a little Renault car, is dreaming of a celebrated career as an author. But he is stuck on writing dime novels. And because his salary is not nearly enough he part-times at a car rental agency. On one of those days, Christopher witnesses an especially perky theft. A young man starts to tamper with a class 7 BMW of the rental car company and rushes off. The young author is appalled but suddenly has a great idea. What if he could use this professional for a research project in the criminal environment? He could be within the presence of real gangsters for his research for an authentic crime novel. So Christopher starts hanging out with Dominic. And after a few difficulties at the start, the hit it off and Dominick introduces him into the underworld. Christopher is thrilled. But Dominic emerges to be an unreliable and unpredictable jack ass, who steers Christopher from one catastrophe to the next. Written by Little Shark Entertainment. GmbH

Hilarious and entertaining
27 March 2008 | by drgonzo73See all my reviews

I just like a movie that doesn't try to be more than it is. The premise is by no means news. Two really different loosers are stuck together against their will and become friends.

What i love is that the director really trusts his story and doesn't try to tune his film up with action-sequences, fancy camera-work or flashy cutting. He just relies on the chemistry of his two main-actors, which is fabulous and on his authentic but very unpredictable story. The dialogue is very funny and so is the situation-comedy.

This movie doesn't reinvent cinema but it knows what it wants to be, and is - nothing more, nothing less - a very funny, very entertaining character-driven down to earth movie.
