Ohhh NOOO!
27 August 2013 | by Titan-KSee all my reviews

Stay away from this movie except you want to learn something about (the non-existence of) German humor(e.g. for social-anthropological investigations).

I don't know how one could put more stereotypes, idiotic clichés and stupidity in a movie. Why are German movies rarely funny? Do they have bad screenwriters? Or do they lack the ability to pick the right ones? I don't know. It seems to me, however, that there is a huge marked for good screenwriters.

An advice for those who are forced to watch this movie: Keep in mind that someone tried to be funny! The fact that they miserably failed can be mildly entertaining.
