Not exactly very subtle
29 January 2002 | by (Eindhoven, the Netherlands) – See all my reviews

OK, I'm going to be short on this one: it's a comedy about the Netherlands' favourite antisocial family that's sent to the United States just to get rid of them. What follows is a series of stereotypes and cliches about both the Dutch and the Americans. Those stereotypes are sometimes funny, mostly stupid and almost without any kind of subtlety. Not recommended for people with weak stomachs or any kind of sophistication, moderately enjoyable for the "average viewer"

*1/2 out of **** stars
