15 years ago Stefan (Lucas Gregorowicz) turned his back on his hometown Würzburg. The time in which he and his buddy Kai (Moritz Bleibtreu) ran the pizza service "Lammbock" with the very special cannabis special, has actually only left ruins which Stefan tries to forget in Dubai. Now, as a lawyer, he is about to marry the young businesswoman Yasemin (Melanie Winiger). But for that he still needs his birth certificate, which he has to pick up in Würzburg. Not really a thing, if it weren't for Kai, who is now getting along rather badly than quite well with the Asia delivery service "Lommbock". One last joint before the wedding for old time's sake - that can't be so bad. And yes, because in Dubai a urine sample is waiting for him in which the cannabis would be proven, which at best would mean the termination of his job. So Stefan has to stay in Würzburg until the grass has been removed from his body - time enough to be caught up by the chaotic past…
15 years ago it is now that director Christian Zübert has brought a real cult film into German cinemas with "Lammbock". Over the years, Zübert has developed enormously as a director and has shown extreme versatility with films such as the wonderful comedy "Three Quarter Moon", the moving tragicomedy "Out and About" or the drama "One Breath". To stop on this path and return to its beginnings is a courageous but also interesting step. Because similar to Danny Boyle and his "Trainspotting" it's exciting to see how Zübert turns his attention to the characters he started his directing career with 15 years ago.
You can see "Lommbock" right in the first minutes that not only Zübert, but also his actors had a lot of fun to dive into the world of pizza and cannabis again. The chemistry between Moritz Bleibtreu and Lucas Gregorowicz is right on the point even after all these years, which makes the new film an amusing reunion with old friends for the viewer. A few elements from the first film are adapted and slightly varied, some running gags are taken up again, but there is also an attempt to develop the characters and their story a little further - as is the case in real life over the course of 15 years.
"Lommbock" is funny and has some really good moments and wonderful dialogues. However, a few gags get a little overused and in other moments the humor just overshoots the mark. But on the whole, Christian Zübert has succeeded in making an absolutely worthy sequel to his cult film, which makes Stefan and Kai want to pay them more visits. Not quite as good as the predecessor, but still absolutely worth seeing for all fans of part 1 and lovers of wonderfully crazy stoner comedies despite minor weaknesses!
