While the Flodders are packing their stuff to move to Zonnedael there is a siren in the background. It cannot be from a Dutch police car or ambulance, since it is a gliding sound.

An anti-social family moves, because of a ridiculous government experiment, into an upper class neighborhood. The neighbors do not except the "Flodders" in their neighborhood. Most of the jokes are about the inappropriate behavior of the Flodders and about the hypocrisy of the neighbors. Mostly crude humor, but if you like that sort of thing than you will find this movie entertaining. The characters are very stereotypical, which I think is a shame. One never really connects with the characters.
This movie clearly targeted an American audience rather than just a dutch audience.
