Go for Zucker! (Alles auf Zucker!) (2006)
Critic Consensus: While a German comedy is a bit of a novelty for American audiences, the lowbrow humor on display in Go For Zucker is only mildly amusing.

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!)
This is an often quirky and sometimes funny German film but I could not really get into it. I kept on thinking that there are so many better family drama films and if I wanted to see pool I would watch the Hustler. I guess this one was unique because it focused on the touchy subject of German Jews. I still have no answer to the Hustler though.
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.
I truly believe this is a universal story. If we take it too seriously or focus too hard on the cultural-religious angle, then yes, our family could be offended. But these characters and their delimmas can be found all over the world, in all cultures. I laughed the entire time--the acting was sublime.
