| Nice and funny movie, but not a great one.
I have not seen the short version of this film, but I think it would have been better not to try to make a full-length movie out of it. This movie did contain some moments that were just as funny as the director's other (great) movie, Bang Boom Bang (and even a very funny one where a scene from that movie is integrated into this one), however, there are too few of these for a full-length film.

Also, the director, who stars in one of the main roles, is certainly not the greatest actor alive, and Diether Krebs, who starred in the short version of this movie but sadly died before the long one was filmed, would probably have given a better performance than his still not-too-bad "replacement".

Still, even if - unlike Bang Boom Bang - this film is not likely to become an instant classic in its genre, people who loved Bang Boom Bang will probably still enjoy this film, and so will fans of actors Ralf Richter, Willy Thomczyk or Hilmi Soezer.
