Critic Reviews for Go for Zucker! (Alles auf Zucker!)
A fine farce about discovering the meaning of 'family' under peculiar circumstances.
Zany Zucker proves that 'German comedy' is no oxymoron, and that the country can at last find humor in its cultural and religious divide.
A character-driven entertainment that stays just the right side of purely physical farce.
A diverting, mildly entertaining movie, far short of provoking the controversy (or hysterical laughter) it apparently prompted during its release in Germany.
Go for Zucker! has one comic trope our capitalist society can definitely understand: the restorative power of a cash bonanza.
Audience Reviews for Go for Zucker! (Alles auf Zucker!)
I was actually initially inclined to turn it off and not finish it, but about twenty minutes in, I was glad I gave it a chance. An oddly funny family "tragicomedy," if you will.
