| Boring road movie without emotion or fun
Act 1 (first 10 minutes): A juvenile financial advisor manages to crash himself and his car while he cannot handle daily obstacles of live (like a traffic jam), then wakes up as wheelchair gimp, loses his girl friend the other day and realizes he needs to save is chunk of illegally gained money from a save harbour country because local tax authorities. That's the start of a most boring read movie trying to make fun of a group of gimps who leave their special-care home for a daytrip to Switzerland in order for the former financial advisor to gain hold of the money he stored in a safe deposit box there.

The only - intentionally - funny parts are the jokes the blind girl cracks on the male care assistant's mother. The other intention of the film, which seems to be to depict gimps outside a special-care home and in a in a noble real world store, is so trivial, it's hard to stay in the movie without leaving or nodding.

The plot is dull. You can tell what will happen 30 minutes before it happens in the movie.

The flick tries to copy success movies like "Vincent Wants To Sea" (aka. "Vincent will Meer"), but fails thoroughly on yielding emotion. The musical score shares the same level of boredom and doesn't add to the movie's emotion.

It's hard to believe that this movie gains so much attention in the news. That attention seems to only be based on the fact that a real world girl suffering from Down's syndrome plays a leading role in the movie. But if that's the only reason for cheering the movie in the news than that's rather a token of expelling than of integration. A movie is not good only because a real world gimp is acting it in.
