RABBIT WITHOUT EARS 2 (2009)
– 2 and a half out of 5 stars
Zweiohrküken (Chicken With Two Ears or Rabbit Without Ears 2) is the sequel to 2007’s Keinohrhasen (Rabbit Without Ears). Til Schweiger and Nora Tschirner reprise their roles as Ludo and Anna, a couple who has been living together for the past two years. Ludo’s neglect of household responsibilities, Anna’s constant nagging and the re-appearances of their hot ex-es strains their relationship.
This sequel lacks the sparkle the first film had though they do play out their gender cliches very well. One of the funniest part involves Ludo’s friend, Moritz, and a plastic bag of poo. It has nothing to do with the couple but the lengths he goes to to get it out of the toilet is OTT. There are some really lame pickup lines that Moritz learns from the “Flirt Academy” and he applies it in the most disastrous way. Ludo even dresses up in drag for a costume party and I must say he draws quite a number of wolf whistles for a guy his age (46 years old at time of filming). I’d say watch it for Til Schweiger – because he’s known as the Brad Pitt of Germany, who I think is hotter than Brad Pitt because he doesn’t look as “beardy”.
