This is a Jubilee film for the 20 years première of the Bullyparade shows, the famous series in the German Television. In 1989 two brothers, Jens und Joerg, didn’t like David Hasselhof.  They hated his show and his performance, planned after the end of the DDR, should not happen. So, they started to support the DDR again in an effort to skip the performance. Parallel, in the old Wild West, after a dispute fifteen years ago, the blood brothers Winnetou and Old Shatterhand meet again after a dispute.   

Due to the amazing beginning of the comedy film, I expected good entertainment. Unfortunately, this was not my final opinion. There were moments with repetitions of old characters and you could guess how the end would be. It looks like a new picture with old colors just dropped into a nonsense. The structure of the film was not very clear. Teenagers might not understand and appreciate the film. The generation forty years and older, who already knew the previous TV series, might have fun. I am disappointed with the expensive production .Even the cast, including famous actors, could not improve and save the film. (Geysa Wiemann)
