No pun intended - and the movie does try to be inclusive. Or make fun of certain things, that the past had in store for us (no puns intended). That being said, there are still many cringe worthy moments, the biggest being the Titanic story. And I say story, because obviously nothing in here is historically accurate. It's a comedy for crying out loud - you should not expect this to tell you what actually went down.

Or will go down in the future (again, no pun intended). Humankind seems to be doomed - something the movie is fully aware of. If the last couple of years have proven anything: we never seize to amaze ourselves when it comes to how low can they go? Something some may feel is also a fair question about the movie at hand.

This is low brow comedy at best. And really digs in its heels (or sandals),when it comes to scoring cheap jokes and all that. Still the actors are good (some reprising multiple roles/characters/iconic historical figures) and the movie starts off quite strong. It does let off a little ... or a lot, depending on how you view things.

Lower your expectations and try to enjoy this ... otherwise you won't have any fun at all. During the end credits there will be a song (I actually liked that, not sure what you will think of it) and some outtakes. They are mixed bag of beans - like the whole movie and the jokes therein.

They try to teach us, but: shouldn't they be funny?

A lot of german film and TV stars get the chance to rewrite history. And mostly they fail.

Because of bad writing? Because of the will, to be political correct? I don't know, but in the end this flic didn't make me laugh. Except the scene with Max Giermann as Jesus, played like a freaked out Klaus Kinski- that was pure great comedy, and of course- a reminder to the mighty Monthy Python-Brian.

Ok good costumes , fine stages , good actors - but the script missed the main thing: be funny , be anarcho ( See Monthy P.!) , don't be p.c., because BEING P. C. ISN'T FUNNY AT ALL!

Nice try, a few nice jokes, but its a typical german film: always co produced by public (state owned) media agencies , that means: it's not possible to be controversial. Otherwise you won't get the money. P.c. Rules all over. It's as simple as that.

Why do so many people dont understand this movie?

First, this is comedy. Not National Geographic or History Channel or similar.

Historical correctness? You don't understand how sarcasm and parody works.

This film has one main statement, which you can find in every sketch/joke/scene. You don't know what i mean. Maybe asking someone how does before writing really low things.

And this statement finishing in the title song played at the end.

In every scene, you can also find other statements about "Humankind" and how great we are.

I can only understand bad critics by (hu)mens, which love all these things, which were mentioned as "The Bad of Humankind" in this film.

This is one of those pearls of movies, which has the outrageous requesting of knowledge by the viewer. Yes, maybe you dont understand the joke, because you dont know the history or just dont understand the critic in it.

Or the translation led lost a lot of it. In German (OT) every sentence has its message. Ok, maybe not the ones of Al and Thierry :) Their are just there to give your brain a break and let you just laugh about pointlessness. (Maybe thats the message in this dialog.)

Definitive not for those, who looking for simple entertainment.

But great for those, who ask for a room to leave your frustation about ignorance.
