One of the characters says that after Röhrich installed some new plumbing appliances it was necessary to call the fire department, the Technisches Hilfswerk (THW, Federal Agency for Technical Relief) and civil protection services (Katastrophenschutz). However, both the fire department and THW are actually part of civil protection services (there is no overall civil protection service entity, it is made up of various organizations). See more »
Werner Eiskalt unfortunately marks a new low for the series. The live action parts (yes, it has live action parts again) are far below any normal standard of acting or comedy. We have to watch Rötger Feldmann and his buddies share their memories about a moderately interesting motorbike race in the late 80s. Werner being his alter ego, the episodes are illustrated with the appropriate characters of the Werner universe, but apparently nobody noticed that many of them are not funny. The whole thing feels like a making-of or promotional TV special rather than an actual movie with a plot. It probably cost next to nothing to produce. Several clips from previous movies are cut into the film, which makes it appear recycled. It's just sad.
