Directed by Rolf Silber, Regular Guys (Echte Kerle) is a german film that is both touching an funny about a pair of cops who are partners investigating a car theft ring. Throw in a mix of mistaken identities, a cute gay car thief, a confused mother, and a sexy female partner and you get an enjoyable movie with a lighthearted touch and a happy ending through all the mix- ups. Christoph Ohrt plays officer Christoph Schwenk who upon returning home one day, after a crime bust, finds his fiancé with another man. Understandably upset he takes his belongings, which along the way he loses as well, and drowns his sorrows. In his stupor he stumbles unknowingly into a gay bar and the next morning wakes up in the arms of Edgar, portrayed by an adorable, an obviously gay, Tim Bergmann. Edgar is infatuated with Christoph and offers him a place to stay but after freaking out a bit Christoph leaves not knowing if anything has happened between them. In a funny moment Christoph has a pizza and salad delivered to him, as he¿s living in his car! Unable to find a place to stay he takes Edgar up on his offer and the two begin sharing the apartment. To make matters worse it turns out Edgar is a mechanic who deals in stolen cars, the same ring Christoph and his partner are investigating. When other members of the force see the two of them together rumors begin to fly about Christoph¿s sexuality. And to throw one more wrench into the mix of things Christoph and his partner get a new colleague, Helen (Carin Tietze) who is living with another woman but whom Christoph is attracted to. Is she gay as well? And then there is Edgars old boyfriend who is part of the car thieves. Through a series of mixups and misadventures this tangles web becomes more tangled until eventually it all works out. The ending is thrown a bit off by an unexpected twist but overall this is a cute and enjoyable film and I highly recommend it. Surprisingly its distributed by Disney¿s Buena Vista International and does feature a fair amount of rear and frontal nudity, but all done in good taste. The DVD has a few trailers of other TLA releases but nothing in the way of extras.
