What's the unfair world: Tom (Jascha Rust) is a really nice guy - and that's why he doesn't get a girl. And as if that weren't bad enough already, he is humiliated as the last virgin of the stage at his Abi celebration and "awarded" with a rubber doll. The evening ends in a strip bar with a lot of alcohol, a rubber doll Fixi at his side and a crack in the film. When he wakes up in his bed the next morning, he is amazed when a real dream woman lies next to him: Fixi (Lisa Tomaschewsky) has actually come to life. And the sex bomb doesn't move Tom from the side anymore. Suddenly the shy cartoonist becomes interesting for other girls and cool for boys who have made fun of him so far. He gets invited to parties and goes to the hottest clubs in town. And he won't be a virgin long. Sounds almost perfect - if it weren't for his best buddy Dodie (Roland Schreglmann), who can't quite understand why Tom doesn't have time for him anymore. As exciting as the time with Fixi and his new "friends" is, it seems to be that Tom is losing sight of everything that is important to him in life…
"Crazy about Fixi" reminds a bit of a mixture of the 80s hits "Mannequin" and "L.I.S.A. - The Bright Insanity". Director Mike Marzuk has obviously made an effort to make the two main characters Tom and Dodie real sympathizers, who radiate the charm of the heroes of this and similar 80s comedies. He succeeded in doing this very well in some areas. In Lisa Tomaschewsky, he has also found the perfect actress for the sex doll that has come to life. Thomaschewsky not only radiates an enormous amount of sex appeal, but also spices up her performance with a proverbial wink. With a good portion of self-mockery she playfully embodies all imaginable clichés of a simple sex object and it's fun to watch her do it. In addition, the film can score with a good soundtrack and some very nice pictures of Frankfurt.
All these positive aspects are unfortunately countered by a very weak script. In most moments, the gags lack any form of depth and tend to move on a ragged, stale level. Even the refreshingly unconsumed actors can do little against this. A lot of potential is given away in favour of flat jokes, which is really a shame in view of the well-done moments. Nevertheless, it must also be said that the comedy is clearly aimed at a young target audience - and that is served well with some reservations. "Crazy for Fixi" doesn't want to be a sophisticated head cinema, but simply tries to offer its viewers 94 fun minutes. And the fact that some really stupid clichés and flat wooden hammer gags are used for this is something that at least shouldn't bother the viewers for whom this movie is made.
And so in the end all that remains to be said is that "Crazy about Fixi" may not be a particularly good, sophisticated or even original comedy. A solid fun for teenagers with a gorgeously over-twisted Lisa Tomaschewsky and two sympathetic main actors is the whole thing. And that's enough for a proper one: Worth seeing!
