August 5, 2006
A brash, energetic, cheerfully slovenly comedy with broadly drawn characters and big performances...

Zany Zucker proves that 'German comedy' is no oxymoron, and that the country can at last find humor in its cultural and religious divide.

Because it's from Germany and we're not onto the tricks of the lead actors, the way this familiar tale plays out is a lot of fun.

The most appealing aspect is that it is not politically correct, stirring comedy out of the clash within a culture, as distinct from films that use clashes of cultures for their comedy.

As a comedy, Zucker is pleasant and spry but not truly exceptional.

A character-driven entertainment that stays just the right side of purely physical farce.
March 27, 2006
too weighted with overdressing and fat to travel all that well.

Go for Zucker! has one comic trope our capitalist society can definitely understand: the restorative power of a cash bonanza.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
February 19, 2006
The humor, in both subtle and slapstick varieties, is fast-paced.
February 9, 2006

January 17, 2006
The movie is raw-looking, and Levy throws the camera around as if it were a Teddy bear, but he controls the actors with calm professional skill --all the characters, beautifully developed in short scenes, are touching and slightly absurd at the same time.
January 10, 2006
Bittersweet exploration of German-Jewish identity
December 15, 2005
In director and co-writer Dani Levy's capable hands, Go for Zucker is less a comedy of religious manners than of Cold War nostalgia on par with 2003's Good Bye, Lenin!
December 8, 2005
Go for Zucker! cleaned up at this year's German film awards. But why should an American moviegoer see it? If you're looking for a reason, here's one: It might be the first funny German movie you've ever seen.
