"Co Mi Zrobisz, Jak Mnie Zlapiesz?," directed by Stanislaw Bareja, is an entertaining comedy with a crazy story. Director Tadeusz Krzakoski (as played by Krzysztof Kowalewski) believes he impregnated an important woman. Being a responsible man he decided he has to marry the woman so child would have a father. The only problem is Tadeusz is already married. To facilitate his future divorce case he hires a photographer to catch his wife cheating on him. To ensure he has a case he tries to hire people for his wife to cheat with. Overall, there are many comical scenes in this film.
There are a several comical scenes in the film which aren't directly related to the main theme of the film. An example is when dump trucks are taking away soil from a depot a man inspects the soil with a long metal pole. He is looking to see if the driver is trying to remove something besides the soil. Finding a single brick, he orders the truck to go back and empty its load.
"Co Mi Zrobisz, Jak Mnie Zlapiesz?" shares similarities to Stanislaw Bareja's "Mis". It has a lot of screwball comedy and pokes fun at some of the situations that existed in Poland during the 1970s. For example, people waiting several days to buy furniture or withdraw money from a bank; a glass cup in the cafeteria is chained down so no one will take it. In addition, both films have some of the same actors, themes, and a similar overall feeling. This 1978 film may have helped pave the way for his 1981 movie "Mis."
