Der letzte Seitensprung ist wohl einer zuviel: Axel wird von seiner Freundin Doro aus der gemeinsamen Wohnung verbannt. Die zwei sind ganz Feuer und Flamme und machen dem strammen Hetero den Hof.

DVD was scratched, so we couldn’t see several parts. Loved the film tho. Me gusta. Great film but much is lost in translation I had to reorder film from another seller to get subtitled German version.
This is a very funny comedy you are sure to laugh a lot!!! Maybe Not American title. There is only one reason to watch this film: sexy Til Schweiger. He has beauty and magnetism, besides being an extraordinary young actor with subtlety, power, and depth. Unfortunately, these qualities are all but lost in this heavy-handed comedy. It is beautifully shot but, considering its comedic intent, rather darkly.
The story and its underlying principles leave much to be desired. Handsome Axel Schweiger works in a 30’s-style supper club, presumably to remind us of the wacky social farces of that period. He spots an attractive woman and gallantly accompanies her into a bathroom stall for a quickie. His girlfriend Doro is in the next stall and informs him that they’re through.
Axel is a very pretty boy but, looking for a place to stay, he is rejected with varying degrees of vehemence by former girlfriends all too familiar with his womanizing. Alas, with the opening credits barely over, we’ve seen the high point of the movie. And no one else even comes close to having any sex after Axel’s inauspicious coitus interruptus. Axel is adopted by a group of gay men in his hour of need. What ensues is a series of awkward and tasteless gags, mostly involving Axel’s discomfort being around gays.
Stereotypes abound, and no one comes off particularly well. The straight men are dorky, unattractive, and strangely mortified by the use of common euphemisms for breasts. The gay men are selfish, unattractive, and impossibly flamboyant in case we miss the point. Doro is shrill, intolerant, and controlling. Adorable Axel is shallow, thoughtless, and virtually monosyllabic.
When Axel speaks of ‚us normal men‘ we know where the film stands politically. The gays appear in women’s clothes much of the time, but speak in exaggeratedly deep voices in case we miss the point. Axel is deeply offended when cruised by a gay man — especially surprising as he is in a gay dance club, hot and sweaty, wearing a sexy muscle shirt, and he has asked the man for a light and directions to the bathroom. The plot thickens – and so does the humor – when Doro discovers that she is pregnant and decides to get Axel back.
She finds him in her own bed with unsightly Norbert, naked, initiating a most inept seduction. Despite this rather awkward reunion, Axel and Doro get married. Axel drops Norbert because his wife is ‚allergic to gays‘. The downward spiral continues unabated. Norbert, a strict vegetarian, hooks up with a repellent and humorless butcher, about whom the best one can say is that he has shaved every inch of his boorish body.
Axel cheats on Doro with a beautiful woman who has a penchant for animal stimulants. At last we hit rock bottom when, during boisterous bout of hysteria, Doro gets slapped and goes into labor. This is funny? Til Schweiger is scrumptious eye-candy, and looks stunning throughout the film in tight t-shirts, muscle shirts, open shirts, no shirts. Thank heavens for small mercies.
But, in one unfortunate aesthetic choice after the other, the odious older men appear in greater states of undress more often than the beautiful young man. The ending has a nice feeling and suggests some reconciliation between Norbert and Axel. It’s too little, too late. Every once in a while, I run a little at-home German film festival for my own amusement and edification.
Sometimes the selections are oddly complimentary. After viewing the somewhat somber ROSA LUXEMBURG, I needed a little uplift, and this charming comedy was just what the Arzt bestellte, uh, the doctor ordered. Who says Germans are sullen and humorless? I laughed out loud at this one more frequently than I do with most American comedies. Or is that not saying very much? This fish-out-of-water comedy revolves around a likeable, but randy heterosexual turned out by his girlfriend after she discovers him and a pick-up in flagrante delectable.
Former girlfriends aren’t exactly eager to take him in, which is kind of telling, and eventually he ends up taking refuge with a gay man he meets by happenstance. No surprise, they bond in significant ways despite the differences in their sexual orientation. Or is there such a difference? Well, yeah, the MAYBE MAYBE NOT question is pretty much a rhetorical one here, but it’s still fun to see this naive straight guy bumble through Cologne gay scene and emerge a little better and wiser for the experience.
He learns to cook at least. The young German cast is very good. The only actor I’m familiar with was Katja Riemann as the beleaguered girlfriend. The male leads Til Schweiger straight Axel and Joachim Krol gay Norbert are perfectly cast, giving more depth to their characters than one might expect. And Rufus Beck as the more outrageous–and, admittedly, more stereotypical–gay friend „Waltraud“ is a hoot.
All in all proof that German humor is NOT an oxymoron! I liked it. I think I liked it because it is so completely different than all the American movies I’m used to seeing. In the beginning, the main character, Axel, decides to randomly have sex with some girl in the bathroom of his workplace. A woman in the next stall recognizes the key chain that dropped from one of the fornicating couple’s clothes.
She peeks over the stall to find her boyfriend of three years mindlessly humping another woman. She kicks him out of their apartment and throughout the rest of the movie he struggles with where to live. Initially he calls old girlfriends who all readily turn him away. After that, he gets drunk at a party and goes home to sleep at one of their houses. This is when the gender preference battle begins. A lot of stereotypes were defied in this movie and I found that extremely refreshing.
For example, it is commonly thought in American society that gay men are promiscuous, however in this movie, no homosexual sex is shown. There is one man-to-man kiss in the club and in another scene homosexual activity is inferred while watching slides but not directly shown on the screen. There are, however, two comparatively graphic heterosexual scenes. The main gay character, Norbert, didn’t act effeminate at all, not even in drag.
My favorite part of the movie however perpetuated and made fun of an existing stereotype – the stupid Stallone-loving straight guy. The guys in the movie theater were very intriguing. I thought they added welcome comic relief to an otherwise tense and dark movie. Ver todas las opiniones. I totally loved it, and I especially loved the main charater Til Sweiger, who played the role of „der bewegte Mann“.
Ich hab den Film gesehn und wieder, er hat nichts an seinem Reiz verloren! Da war der deutsche Film noch gut! Ich kenne den Film schon lange, und hatte ihn damals schon als Laserdisc. Das Bild und der Ton wirklich gut. Das Mediabook sieht sehr gut aus.
