Texas - Doc Snyder hält die Welt in Atem (1993

Infamous bandit Doc Snyder returns to his hometown Texas after 30 years to get his other to wash his dirty laundry.

The comedian and musician Helge Schneider has his cult following in Germany, and his absurd and anarchaic humour has a limited appeal; but in his first movie, a Western of some kind, it rarely translates to the screen, and the overabundance of scatological jokes doesn't help (tellingly, the movie's tagline translates to "For a fistful of shit") nor does Schneider's babytalk performance.
