Lots of fun
13 August 2001 | by maxwellshamSee all my reviews

This movie was so much fun. I really had a good time. I saw the trailer and it looked pretty good and I'm a sucker for german comedy so I decided to watch this on TV. It was great. Really simple and well done. The plot was very funny and kept good time. The acting was up to scratch with Herbert Knaup doing better in the second half of the movie and Alex Lara very nice to look at all through. It is not serious for even a second which is great and it had me entertained all the way through. The ending is also pretty funny. What can I say I loved it.

The story is about a wealthy banker who is about to go on a holiday to the South Pacific when he loses all his money on a dodgy investment deal. He has to keep up appearances though and the lengths he goes to to do this are quite hilarious.
