Funny Dutch movie
26 January 2003 | by (Alphen) – See all my reviews

Although it's been quite a long time since I've seen this movie, I still remember it to be a very funny one.

It's actually a movie within movie...the crew is being followed during their hard time to create a movie. Not only are their problems on a technical level, but the relations between the movie stars lead to funny situations.

Finally I'd like to make a tribute to one of the best Dutch comedians: Kees van Kooten, in Holland best known for his appearances on TV-shows with his partner Wim de Bie (mid sixties to 1998).
