Trivia

As JoJo walks around town after Hitler tells him to start acting his age, he sees citizens (Volksturm) learning to use the Panzerfaust, a hand-held anti-tank weapon that was very easy to operate and deadly against Allied tanks and other armored vehicles during the invasion of Germany in 1945.

Goofs

The "free Germany" sign Rosie is passing around is on a modern bumper sticker. This goof may well be intentional. The movie is loaded with modern references that are played for laughs (using The Beatles and David Bowie in the soundtrack and lines such as Fraulein Rahm saying "O... M... Gott" instead of saying OMG.) See more »

Quotes

Elsa Korr: There are no weak Jews. I am descended from those who wrestle angels and kill giants. We were chosen by God. You were chosen by a fat man with greasy hair and half a moustache.

From crying with laughter to tears of despair
25 December 2019 | by nbenardoutSee all my reviews

For me this film is a total paradox. I have never laughed so hard in one scene and then cried like a baby in the next. It's unique. Go watch.
