As you probably already guessed correctly from the title, this is the sequel to the super-successful "Fack ju Göhte" from 2 years ago. And looking at audience numbers, it seems that this one could become as much of a hit. The cast includes the core players from the first film, especially M'Barek, Herfurth, Flint and Haase, who basically carry this almost 2-hour film. It is a comedy mostly, but there are some dramatic parts included too here and there. These involve child labor, drug production, Asperger's, neglectful parents, identity crises, crushes on teachers etc. So actually, there's quite a lot. The writer and director is Bora Dagtekin again. He has worked so much with M'Barek in the past. This time it's about a travel as the main character Zeki and some of his class members fly to Thailand. The good thing is that they did not include generic love story troubles between Zeki and Lisi, which was good. However, they made errors in many other areas in exchange. The main problem is exactly the dramatic aspects I just mentioned. These were not well-constructed at all I must say and seemed just thrown in randomly to give this film some more relevance. Pretty disappointing. It would have been okay if they had taken 1 or 2 and elaborated profoundly on these, but nope. This sequel works best when it is 100% comedy. The scenes with Uschi Glas were pretty hilarious and Katja Riemann's last scene with our two protagonists was fine too. This was more due to the writing though than to Riemann giving a convincing performance. The possibly biggest revelation here was Jella Haase once again who truly made this character her own and with the way how crass she was it could certainly have become annoying or repetitive at some point, but it did not. Unfortunately, I have to criticize the writing in other places again. All in all, this film lacked realism. There were just too many laughable coincidences in here and it was also predictable. Of course, he would stay a teacher, even with the embarrassing identity crisis they included. And of course would Haase's character and the Asperger boy make a connection somewhat. At least they did not fall in love, but maybe we have to watch this in a third movie. I am fairly certain they will make one at some point with how big of a commercial success this one here turned out. All in all, I was not really impressed. Some scenes were funny, but in the light of two hours it just wasn't worth the watch I must admit. Not recommended.
