Trivia

The father of the family was initially supposed to be a jet pilot, but the budget would only allow for a helicopter, which had to be rented out of Belgium as the Dutch army refused all cooperation. Likewise, as there was no money for jeeps and soldiers in camouflage, the crew had to make do with an old car that was painted green, filled with extras wearing sunglasses. See more »

Goofs

A 1976 Chevrolet Impala sedan is used at the end of the movie by John Gisbert and his wife to chase their kids. The number plate changes from 00-MF-60 to 27-MZ-67 between shots. See more »

Odd comedy.
20 February 2004 | by (Groningen, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie is not like other comedies, it's extremely violent, offensive and weird at times, the result is an odd comedy that has its few moments.

The movie starts of quite well and has a good concept but later on the movie suddenly takes a turn and becomes even more odder and unlikely than the first halve, with the weird and sudden musical number that doesn't fit into the movie at all as the ultra lowest point of the movie. I lost all my respect and interest after that moment.

But sure the movie has its moments. There are some comical and funny moments and Rijk de Gooyer plays an enjoyable character but all of that is simply not enough to save this movie.

Not worth seeing.

4/10
