The man from Holland who made Sharon Stone famous in "Basic Instinct" was in the 70's a well known director from Dutch movies and "Wat zien ik?" is the man's debut. It's a well known fact that Paul doesn't want to be reminded of it, but it exists on celluloid so.... It's one of those typical early sexcomedys for which Holland was famous for but mind you 3 decades later it comes over as laughable.

In this movie we follow the adventures of two hookers who has to obey the weird wishes of their strange clients, but mind you there is absolutely, apart from some (ugly) naked breasts nothing to see so there is no reason to watch it. Perhaps for the humour then? Hmmm it's more embarrassing and an episode from Arnold is more funnier than that so in a short : a movie for the bin!
