Director: Til Schweiger

Stars: Til Schweiger, Nora Tschirner, Matthias Schweighöfer

Gossip-columnist Ludo finds himself sentenced to three-hundred hours of community service after he literally crashes a private celebrity party. The work is at a children's day-centre and while the job's fine it is his bad luck that the person in charge is a woman whom he used to play endless practical jokes on when they were at school; she hasn't forgotten and is prepared to use her new-found power to get her own back. She finds however that, like the children, she's warming to him. If only the court injunction had stopped his womanising too.

Did You Know?

After protests from parents and politicians concerning some dialogue scenes, in January 2008 the FSK raised the rating from "Not under 6" to "Not under 12" (which actually does NOT avert children between 6 and 12 to see the film, they must just be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian).

Anachronisms: In on of the scene in which Ludo and Anna are shown as kids, Anna opens a Coke can which content sprays in her face. Based on the fact that Anna is called to be 29 in the movie the review might show her in the eighties. But the can with it's recent shape and opening seal hadn't been released in this time. The cans (in Germany) had a straight shape and seal which could have been torn off.

Anna Gutslowsky: Jeder Affe haette das besser hinbekommen!
Ludo Dekker: Ja, wenn er Holländisch kann.

Hilarious Romance - A Must-See

Rating: 10/10

I haven't heard much about that movie prior but had seen a very short preview recently. And this movie was a very pleasant surprise (unlike most of the German productions). Till Schweiger known in the USA from rather serious roles, has become popular in Germany because of all his hilarious and humorous pictures. Again in Keinohrhase he is totally taken up with that funny but also dressy womanizer 'Ludo' who is working as a gossip reporter, always going prey on explosive pictures from local stars. After a very tricky shoot on an important star happening which ends in an éclat he is sentenced to do community service for a not insubstantially period of time at a kindergarten where he meets his unimposing school mate Anna and destiny continued to unfold. It is a very romantic and hilarious picture, which could have been normally attributed to kitschy Hollywood. But as it arises from a German production it appears to be a bit fresher than any plain American romance. It is not really kind of a new plot but it directly goes into your heart due to a disarming love story which is pepped up with great actors who are doing very funny and bright dialogs. Its absolutely spot-on for Christmas. Best Scene is the intro with Jürgen Vogel
