As a first hour Schneider viewer for some now blurred reason, i must say, this movie simply says two things: Rocko Schamoni is only good for burning down filthy clubs and creating absurd shaming-nonsense and Helge just doesn't seem to care anymore. That's what even his facial expression tells me. Except for some very few grains of salt that just don't make a supper out of the lukewarm water, the movie is fragmented beyond repair and rather resembles a weak attempt to drop never to be heard again names than even trying to be a real movie. Yes i noticed the alleged criticism that poured out of the script - but it lacked execution. It felt like, okay the people expect jokes, throw them some. And again. And again. Not funny at all. Just plain boring. The main actor clearly is a dog, sympathy-wise. The rest is fore-mentioned heartless supper with some rancid storytelling-fat. And all the time you should have your hands free, so you could facepalm yourself in case Till Schweiger should show up. Which he luckily doesn't, but it wouldn't have surprised me, at all. The absence of Till Schweiger really is the only thing that still separates this movie from the usual German comedy garbage. And i see, nice old cars you have there, but you perhaps shouldn't blindly hand the direction to your infant kids - no matter how proud you are of them. Maybe, with Mr. Schlingensief the last bits of real class in experimental film-making died and all is now just some tasteless circus of effortlessness. One for the Money. I was searching for some final description, but i was so sick and tired of the movie, please just pick one of the translation results for me, will you please: despondent, discouraged, dejected, fainthearted, spiritless. What a pity, Helge. I am really disappointed.
