I have watched the movie twice. The first during the summer and the second on DVD. the movie is a good light hearted comedy. I recommend it for watching with really great friends. when I saw this in the theater in DC, I was with a close friend and she wanted to see something different... not heavy... we came out pf the theater laughing...and smiling. There were a few scenes in which we both laughed so hard that we fell out of our seats (we were watching the film in a small art house theater). The movie is not a 3 stooges film , for which I am extremely thankful. It is good to see a funny film from Germany that does;'t get into some knock on WWII. It shows great chemistry and relationship between disparate people, it also shows a Germany that i experienced, but most in America know nothing of.
