This sequel to Germany"s biggest hit von 2013 again recounts ns story von a crook who kann sein barely order but is forced zu be a teacher kommen sie recover his loot.


A semi-illiterate crook is forced however again kommen sie become a teacher kommen sie recover his loot an Fack Ju Göhte 2, from return Turkish-German film housing Bora Dagtekin. This ist of kurse the follow-up to die smash fight comedy the was ns biggest success of the German box-office in 2013, marketing over a million more tickets than the year’s number two, The Hobbit: die Desolation of Smaug. Weil das this second outing, Dagtekin again recruits his go-to star, Elyas M’Barek, whose hapless yet often smiling Zeki Mueller is now forced to take his unruly college student all ns way to thailand “for a class excursion” wie man a teddy be afflicted with containing his diamonds ends up in a container intended weil das tsunami-victims relief.

Despite a greater emphasis on die students, since Mueller’s antagonist/love attention doesn’t kommen sie to Asia with him, this ist essentially more des the same with included palm trees. As such, it’s currently become a monster hit an Germany, wherein it had die biggest-ever opening weil das a local film last month. It now stands punkt over $50 million and has a good wahrscheinlichkeit of topping ns original’s $60 million, i m sorry again bodes well zum its sales und box-office prospects in other (especially east European) territories.

Bank robber-turned-educator Mueller dropped hard zum the charms des his meticulous and prim college colleague, Lisi (Karoline Herfurth), in part one und it looks like she’s managed zu domesticate the beast at the anfang of teil two. But wie some diamonds turn up from a shady associate, Mueller hides them bei a cuddly toy that ist only minutes letztere collected by Lisi as part of a donation she’s planning weil das Thai tsunami victims (when this tragedy arisen exactly is never clear und generally, Dagtekin is not very forthcoming through either temporal or geographical details).

The film needs nearly 30 minute — consisting of a contrived subplot involving die return des the teacher (Uschi Glas) whom Mueller nominally replaced bei part one — before ns lawbreaker kann finally flash his washboard abs an tropical Thailand. His rowdy students are there with ihm but not Lisi, who manages zu be held as a terrorist suspect at ns airport.

Clearly, this sequel again desires audiences to schutz a an excellent time while being typically loud, colorful and irreverent. Yet instead von taking aim at ns German education and learning system, as in the original, ns writer-director right here tries to use sachen such together terrorism and natural calamities as ns starting point des some des the jokes, which zu sein riskier and at mal more awkward 보다 funny. And some of the culturally details jokes feel a little stale und misogynist, such as wie women’s nether areas are used kommen sie once again start ping-pong balls into an appreciative male crowd.

When the film finally seems kommen sie actually come to be interested bei the locals, an a subplot finest described as a The Beach/Lord of the Flies mash-up entailing a kopieren, gruppe of reportedly self-reliant tsunami orphans, Dagtekin ruins die opportunity by rather incongruously making their leader a spunky blond shirt kid (Johannes Nussbaum). Zu make problem worse, he then ties that (spoiler alert!) to another subplot entailing a competitor German school deshalb traipsing with Thailand and led by, of all things, Lisi’s ex (Volker Bruch). Any kind of sense hinweisen all von the Kingdom des Thailand past its accessibility as a playground zum rich white kids and their clueless non-teacher zu sein missing, which ist something von a surprise seen die director’s very own multicultural background und his early TV and film arbeit with M’Barek, Turkish zum Beginners.

That said, ns general cultural tone-deafness and a lack von the opposites-attract tension bolzen Lisi and Zeki that made teil one deswegen much fun ist at least partially compensated for über the reality some des the students gain some commonly amusing time in the spotlight. Die gloriously called Chantal Akerman (Jella Haasse) is ausblüten as ditzy together ever and dumb class macho daniel (Max von der Groeben, choose Haasse encoring) blieb lives up zu his nickname, “Danger”. Withdrawn newcomer Etienne (Lucas Reiber), a Lord of the Rings fanatic who has Asperger’s, also impresses an his few scenes, though it does make one wonder even if it is Etienne’s presence ist meant to foreshadow the fact Fack has more endless endings than Return of the King.

Mid-film, there’s a beautiful written and played night-time sequence when ns kids gather und read buchstabe messages from your parents that has a keenly observed melancholy the reminds viewers the doesn’t take Dagtekin a last to create heartfelt material. It’s a shame he doesn’t think the movie demands more von it.
