No, you're supposed to come up with a different variation.

I suppose one should give it the benefit of the doubt, though. Is there an English version?
Well, it's also a bit of an homage and parody of Karl May's "Winnetou" stories, and the movies that were made from them (The main characters "Abahachi", whose gay [intentionally stereotypically gay. Mr. Herbig knows that most gays aren't like that, and he has nothing against them. But this is a comedy, so the character is over the top even for a stereotypical gay character.] brother happens to be called "Winnetouch", and his friend "Ranger" are direct references to the main characters Winnetou and Old Shatterhand, with them even wearing pretty much the same costume design. Abahachi even uses Winnetou's trademark gun, the "Silver Gun" - a rifle decorated with silver studs.). You'll even get to see a drunk Karl May towards the end of the movie, even though that is not historically correct: He never visited the US until *after* all his Winnetouch books were written and published. Same goes for all his other books set in faraway places. He was however well read on the subject, and had a good imagination. And while they might not be entirely accurate, they are amazingly good despite that fact.

The film wasn't the start of this parody, by the way. Michael Bully Herbig had been doing sketches with these characters for some time in his show, the "Bullyparade". Then people could vote what they wanted to see as a movie, and this one's what they chose.



There is an English version, yes. Two, actually. The original dub which was done by the original actors, in an attempt to preserve the humour delivered through the fact that Abahachi and Ranger speak Bavarian, for example. The other one (the "Extra Large" version, I think), done by American actors using modern American slang instead. Then of course there's the option of viewing the movie in the original German with English subtitles.

Here's a snippet of the German intro of the "Extra Large" version with English subtitles. From what I see, they translated that very well. I think it would really be best if you chose to see the movie with English subtitles.

There's one character called "Grauer Star", which they translated as "Grey Starling". While you could translate "Star" as the bird, in this case it was a play on words, where Star means "Star" as in the sense of a popular person. It's also a play on words because "Grauer Star" is a common name for a cataract in the eye - which this character might have, seeing as he is older. And a Star too.


Oh, and to the guys back from the NWN groups: This is where that one quote is from. ^_^

I really can't take the advice of someone who can't objectively prove he exists, so no.

Has anybody seen my mojo? It was here just a little while ago. It's about this big *makes wild gesticulation*, wearing a burgundy Tom Baker scarf and a grey airforce overcoat. If you see it, could you maybe tell it I'm down in the lobby waiting for it?
