Fluffy German sex comedy about a recently abandoned gay man who wakes up one morning to find most of his expensive appliances gone with his last relationship. He takes in a gorgeous hunk (Til Schweiger), recently tossed out by his girlfriend, who seems to be pretty straight but doesn’t seem to be without possibility either. They hang around, go to parties, we watch as Schweiger showers in front of his friend, but this film features any of the charming hedonism it seems to advertise. Instead, it’s a moderately funny, uninteresting slice of life that never really goes anywhere.
