| What a Joke (But Not Funny)!
The other day this movie became a topic of discussion between my buddies and I, so out of curiosity I checked in with IMDb so see the viewer rating and comments, and got completely appalled by the high score and raving reviews this movie received! Not trying to be overly harsh here, but this movie would barely pass as a summer vacation project of 8th graders! The story, the overall sense of humor and the individual jokes are so poor that they're not even worth ranting about; I got about two anemic chuckles throughout the entire movie. I believe the "burlesque-feeling" in one of the previous reviews is trying to refer to the cinematography, which was more of a video clip knock-off than real burlesque - in the memory of Charlie Chaplin and Harold Lloyd, let's try not using this word in this case...! I'm still puzzled by how this magnificent cast ended up getting suckered into this nonsense. In a totally ironic way, this movie did become a good historic account of the "try to get rich with sub-par effort" attitude of post-socialist Hungary - through its own self!

In summery, the only thing I liked about this movie was the sound track. By not measuring up even to "Baby Geniuses", I'm giving this movie a 1.5/10 (rounded up to in the vote pulldown). If you enjoy humorous and bizarre, but want to see a quality movie, go watch "Kontroll".
