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 Buick LeSabre is the car of John Gisberts. The exhaust pipe is on the right of the car. In one shot (when his kids put a condom on the exhaust), it is moved to the left. Same for a yellow sticker on the back of the car. 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
