"You Wouldn't Have Had Much Fun in Stalingrad, Would You?"



Today I watched a horrid movie from Germany called Mein Fuhrer (2007). It was a weak attempt at satirizing Hitler and his regime ala The Great Dictator (1940). It's tricky business lampooning something as awful and as awfully deadly as the Third Reich. The above clip starring the great Monty Python Comedy Troupe shows how it can be done.

Nobody does anything like the Python boys.

You've been stuck...uh, nominated for a Kreativ Blogger award here (http://anotheroldmovieblog.blogspot.com/). Congrats, and don't spend it all in one place.

I tried to watch Mein F├╝hrer a few days ago. I had to give it up 15 minutes in.

Sometimes you just have to say no to a film.
