Popular German comic Otto Waalkes stars in this comedy about a country boy who comes to the big city. He takes a job as a handyman with disastrous results due to his ineptitude. Otto falls for a pretty woman who has a crush on a musclebound movie star. He masquerades as a veterinarian psychiatrist in an attempt to win the woman's love, and he repeatedly pokes fun at the Teutonic tendency for order and conformity. Waalkes has been compared to Robin Williams and Groucho Marx in terms of his comic delivery.
