With their sex hotline, their friends Waltraud (Gisela Schneeberger), Lena (Rosalie Thomass) and Maria (Bettina Mittendorfer) rescued themselves from impending bankruptcy a few years ago. But now their commitment is in demand again, the whole of Marienzell is suffering from the rural exodus. The reason for this is the lack of high-speed Internet. It is not profitable for suppliers to lay the necessary cable. And the plan to simply lay the cable yourself also goes wrong. The three women may have a saving idea: they want to take part in the big dance competition in neighbouring Josefskirchen! The prize money could help them with the necessary wiring. But not only that, despite the support of juror Jorge González, they hardly have time to rehearse a choreography. It also turns out that the wife of the mayor of Marienzell with her costume group also wants to take part in the competition. And that Waltraud, Lena and Maria win, she wants to prevent in any case…
2011 brought director Markus Gollner with the comedy "Eine ganz heiße Nummer" a real surprise hit in the cinemas, which could inspire well over 1 million viewers. A sequel has been announced for some time, now Rainer Kaufmann has implemented it eight years after the debut. No question: The chemistry between Rosalie Thomass, Gisela Schneeberger and Bettina Mittendorfer is still right and there are some really funny moments. But altogether it is confirmed again that sequels are mostly just a tired copy of the original.
The story has some nice ideas, but the realization is quite boring. Most scenes that are supposed to be funny just aren't. It simply lacks, quite contrary to part 1, speed and esprit. This also means that the charm that helped the predecessor overcome so many weaknesses is lost. "A very hot number 2.0" looks like very shallow TV entertainment, that doesn't really hurt, but can't leave any lasting impression.
Although it's highly creditable to the makers that they didn't tell the same story again and instead decided on a completely new story, which even has something like a socio-political relevance, the result is unfortunately not really convincing. In spite of the trio of leading actresses who are once again beyond all doubt, there is only one thing left for this comedy: Worth seeing only with significant reductions!
