Doppelpack was one of the more pleasant surprises in german cinemas recently: Most german films nowadays have plots that attempt (but frequently fail) to be funny, like most of Til Schweiger's oeuvre.
Doppelpack, refreshingly, does not pretend to have more plot than "two buddies go out drinking together, go to a boring family party, meet two girls and go to a punk concert". Still, the film captures the attitude of the two nice "losers": They've withdrawn from the hectic mobile-phone-world of modern Germany into their own underworld, boozing in a park, trying to meet girls ("You know what our problem is? The sort of girl we'd like to meet doesn't often take a stroll round the park with a bottle opener in her handbag"), listening to old-fashioned music (with electric guitars in it)... A great film if you get the joke, which is that a lot can happen even if, on the surface, very little actually does happen. For film lovers.
