Men are simple, women are simpler ...
8 April 2015 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Or something like that. The movie is filled with clichés, but does not capitalize on them as good as it could have for comedy purposes. No one has to tell you that one guy outside our main male group who plays it tough, is actually anything but tough in his own home. So while the movie is predictable, the thing that really hurts is the fact that almost none of the jokes actually work.

Best of the bunch is Christoph Maria Herbst, getting a few chuckles with his character. He is known as "Stromberg" in Germany, a German version of the Office. Elyas M'Barek plays a bit with his image here, which would be nice if they actually had good stuff to support it. He's the flavor of the month right now, with his movies making a lot of money. That's no excuse for a poorly written script though. Remarks to German soccer/football are not helping either, making the viewer feel uncomfortable rather than amused. Still there are flashes of good things, mostly because one of the actors is giving us something ... to laugh about. Who'd have thought?
