Goofs

When Tommy is playing the saxophone he is not moving his hands. It doesn't fit with the music. See more »

Alternate Versions

For the older video and DVD releases all songs played on the radio were changed to totally different songs, because the music releases expired. Some of Thomas Gottschalks dialogue was also re-looped (by a different person) because his character introduces the songs. For the newer DVD edition (2007) the original music rights were renewed and the film appears in the same form like during its theatrical release. See more »

thommy in a movie? yes, and he is not the worst...
28 January 2001 | by LurchiSee all my reviews

with a distance of almost 20 years this film can really be fun. hilarious story, some talented actors, famous names and the feeling of the 80s this flick is in tradition of 70s nonsense films. without thomas gottschalk in the leading role no one could watch this film to the end, but otherwise it´s so bad that it´s getting good again. but don´t consider paying money for the rental, wait for tv.
