''Bang Boom Bang'' is a German comedy movie from 1999, directed and written by Peter Thorwarth. It's the first part of his "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unna Unna]] Trilogy".

In short: It's a dirty, but very funny movie about small criminals - a bit like an early Creator/GuyRitchie movie transplanted to Germany. For the full plot, see [[Synopsis/BangBoomBang the synopsis]].

!!Examples:

* TheAlcoholic: Schlucke.
* TheAllegedCar: Keek's mint-green Ford Taunus. After the movie, it's in even worse shape.
* AxCrazy: Kalle is dangerous.
* BadBoss: Werner Kampmann.
* BadGuysPlayPool: And make porn movies on pool tables.
* BatterUp: After [[spoiler:finding Schlucke's corpse in [[PunkInTheTrunk Keek's car]]]], Andy and Keek go interrogate Ratte whom Andy suspects of [[spoiler:having murdered Schlucke]]. Andy wields Keek's aluminum baseball bat. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] because both know that Ratte is probably even more of a gangster than Kalle.
* BerserkButton:
** Kalle doesn't react well when he learns that his wife appeared in a home porn movie.
** Don't throw your cigarette butt into Schlucke's grave. Andy still has some respect left for the old guy.
* BlackAndGrayMorality: Even the good guys are crooks in this movie.
* BlackComedy: Especially the scenes around the funeral.
* TheCameo: German star Til Schweiger plays a footballer (with fake dreadlocks and in blackface). The director also has one.
* CasanovaWannabe: Max Kampmann who tries to hit on Melanie.
* ChekhovsGun: The video. Melanie's cell phone.
* [[ChekhovsGunman Chekhov's Gunwoman]]: Melanie, intern in Kampmann's firm, who likes to play around with her cell phone. [[spoiler:Which she uses to film Kampmann when he enters the combination.]]
* CoolCar:
** The Mercedes 500 SEC Kalle orders while in prison and later pimps up. Well, at least he thinks it's a cool car.
** Some say that ''Bang Boom Bang'' made the "Knudsen" Taunus cool since Keek drives one, [[TheAllegedCar Alleged Car]] or not.
* CounterfeitCash: Hilmi gives it to Keek and tells him to mix it with real money. "They screwed us, we screw someone else. A circle, you know?" Note: The money is ''so fake'' and badly printed you even notice if you only glimpse at it.
* CrimeAfterCrime: After breaking in at Kampmann's, stealing the safe and demolishing the building to do so, they also have to destroy a radar trap they were caught on.
* DisposingOfABody: Necessary in [[spoiler:Schlucke]]'s case.
** First, [[Ratte places Schlucke's corpse [[PunkInTheTrunk in Keek's car]]]] in order to avoid looking like his murderer (which he does anyway when Andy And Keek find the body).
** Next, Andy and Keek have to get rid of him and bury him in a forest. When they find out about the key to an airport locker full of money [[spoiler:stuck in his windpipe]], they exhume him again.
* DistractedByTheSexy: [[spoiler:Melanie and her friend appear in bikinis (they're going to Spain after all), so the men at the x-ray machine don't notice the huge stack of paper money in her bag.]]
* DoubleEntendre: ''Eingelocht'', the title of the porn movie.
* DumbBlonde: Melanie, intern in Kampmann's firm. As Kampmann says, she was only hired for having perfect 90-60-90 measurements. [[spoiler:Subverted - at the end, she takes the money!]]
* EasterEgg: The DVD also contains the short movie ''Mafia, Pizza, Razzia'' by Thorwarth.
* EatTheEvidence: Schlucke with the [[spoiler:key for the locker. It's what kills him.]]
* FatBastard: Werner Kampmann.
* {{Fingore}}: When the frustrated Andy kicks the safe door shut, Keek's thumb is severed. Making things more complicated: It's ''in the safe'' now, and the safe is so warped that the door can't be opened anymore. Keek's main sorrow is that his fingerprint is now in the safe; he could just as well have left a business card behind. Keek and Andy have to have the safe ''welded'' open, and in an emergency operation, it's reattached.
* HandCannon: Kalle loves huge pistols.
* ICouldaBeenAContender: Schlucke.
* ImportantHaircut: After breaking out, Kalle cuts off his long hair. And gets a way too deep tan at the tanning studio.
* InsuranceFraud: Kampmann tries to pull this off by having Schlucke stage a burglary in his company. Schlucke, bumbling but not as stupid as Kampmann believes, decides to get his payback for 20 years of mistreatment by ''actually'' breaking in and stealing something ''very'' valuable.
* JadedWashout: Schlucke.
* LoveInterest: Melanie and Andy. [[spoiler:It doesn't work out.]]
* MeaningfulName: "Schlucke" bluntly hints that he's got a drinking problem. "Ratte"... see: YouDirtyRat.
* MyGirlIsNotASlut: Kalle expects this from Manuela. The reality is the very opposite.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Keek (real name: Dirk), Schlucke, Ratte
* ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish: The safe combination is 90-60-90 (Melanie's measurements, 36-24-36 in inches).
* PoliceAreUseless: Definitely in the one scene where they appear in Keek's apartment to look for Kalle. All the time, he's lying under the couch. And then, one policeman tries to flip a cigarette and catch it with his mouth, drops it on the floor next to Kalle - but then decides to not pick it up.
** Later, they manage to [[spoiler:shoot Kalle and arrest Kampmann.]] It's like realistic police work: They catch some criminals, other ones... not.
* PunkInTheTrunk: [[spoiler:After Schlucke asphyxiated on the locker key, Ratte panicks and [[DisposingOfABody stuffs his corpse]]]] into the trunk of Keek's Taunus.
* {{Safecracking}}: Keek, of all people, can do it. [[spoiler:Not however if one of his thumbs is ripped off.]]
* ShoutOut: When Keek calls Kampmann to try to blackmail some money from him, he calls himself Ned Flanders. Since Kampmann doesn't know ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Keek has to explain what an honest guy Ned Flanders is.
* StealTheSurroundings: When Andy and Keek discover that Kampmann's safe (with Keeks [[{{Fingore}} thumb]] in it) cannot be opened anymore, they have to get it somewhere where it can be cut open. So they tie a chain around it, attach the other end on Keek's Taunus and drag it out of the office building and through "half the Ruhrgebiet". It has been on the second floor, and the first thing it hits after being dragged through the outer wall is Max Kampmann's BMW.
* TheStoner: Keek -- level: [[Film/TheBigLebowski Dude]].
* StupidCrooks:
** Keek really isn't that competent.
** Neither is Schlucke who wants to steal the safe key from Kampmann while [[InsuranceFraud staging the burglary]], and who is stupid enough to reveal first to Andy and Keek and then to the actual gangster Ratte that he's "planning something himself". Among other things, this leads to these three finding Kampmann's storage empty (which Schlucke knew all along).
--->'''Andy:''' "Schlucke, what are we supposed to steal here, the forklift?"
* TropicalEpilogue: Or at least Subtropical: [[spoiler:Noone but Melanie]] in Mallorca, Spain.
* BriefcaseFullOfMoney:
** Stashed away in an airport locker. [[spoiler:At least everyone except Melanie thinks so.]]
** A Suitcase Full Of Money is what Keek wants from Kampmann.
* TrunkShot: As a ShoutOut to ''Film/PulpFiction''.
* UnwantedAssistance: When Keek and Schlucke buy the car for Kalle from the Danish gang, Andy joins them, to check whether the car is in order. Unfortunately they didn't tell him that they want to pay with fake money and have to pull this through as fast as possible.
* VanityLicensePlate: Keek's Taunus has DO[[note]]for Dortmund[[/note]]-PE 69.
* YouDirtyRat: One of the criminals is nicknamed "Ratte".
* YourCheatingHeart: Manuela - Kalle's wife who works in a video store - doesn't see why she shouldn't have sex while her husband is doing time. "Am I supposed to live like a nun?" However, acting in a porn movie may have been too much.
