A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
You can do lots of stupid things and still somehow emerge unscathed.
Positive Role Models
Lolle is indecisive and self absorbed. Sven is a drifter who claims to want to settle down. Dana is depressed and mean-spirited.
Violence & Scariness
The movie is filled with cartoonish violence, including car crashes, foot chases with angry men with guns, nudists, a bear, and police officers. People fight and wrestle cartoonishly. Offscreen, a man had a motorcycle accident that left him paralyzed and wishing to die. Women are handcuffed at a traffic stop. A woman aids someone who wishes to commit suicide. A man who talks about sticking his fingers in a fan to do deliberate damage is later seen with fingers seemingly missing and a bloody, bandaged hand, all for comic effect.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Berlin, Berlin: Lolle on the Run is a German-language comedy (with English subtitles) that reunites characters from a German television series of the 2000s. The material is mature, even as the comedy sometimes strives to be juvenile. A woman about to marry is accosted by an old boyfriend at her wedding, at which point he reveals he had sex with her only a week before. Theft, drug-dealing, drinking, bribing a police officer, and mad chases through the forest make this lively but dopey and definitely designed for older teens and adults. Breasts are seen in a nudist colony. A woman offers oral sex to a police officer during a traffic stop, then grabs his testicles and twists, allowing an escape. Language includes "f--k," s--t," "bitch," "penis," "d--k," "horny," "ass," "screw," "bum," "butt," "damn," "suck," and "balls."

Is It Any Good?
This failed attempt at madcap comedy has a lot of energy but strains unsuccessfully to be funny. Acting and directing styles both suggest desperation inBerlin, Berlin: Lolle on the Run. The material is just a collection of dusty old routines we've all seen before and flashbacks from the original TV series suggest the show was probably no better. Gosh, the women stumble on a hidden meth lab and run from comic bad guys. The women's drying clothes get stolen, by nudists, no less! In one innovation, a bear swallows a cell phone, the bear rings, then his stomach somehow answers the call. None of this is funny. Yet the filmmakers contrive to throw every stupid trick they can think of into this. None of them work.
Did we miss something on diversity?
