7 Zwerge (2004, GER) C-95m. SCOPE ** D: Sven Unterwaldt Jr. Starring Otto Waalkes, Heinz Hoenig, Mirco Nontschew, Boris Aljinovic, Markus Majowski, Martin Schneider, Ralf Schmitz, Cosma Shiva Hagen, Nina Hagen, Hans-Werner Olm, Atze Schröder, Christian Tramitz, Mavie Hörbiger, Helge Schneider, Harald Schmidt, Tom Gerhardt. Silly spoof of fairy tales, in particular the Grimm's fairy tale Snow White and the Seevn Dwarfs about the title characters, 7 men, who have all opted to live in the forest after a woman has disappointed them. Suddenly they are confronted with an innocent beauty (C.S. Hagen), who is sought after by the evil queen (N. Hagen). Some laughs, but lots of low-brow humor, not always funny. Followed by a sequel in 2006.
