Therefore, Germaine wants him to become a mannequin and work for her. As mannequin he meets Sarah.

Good Belgian humor, too bad about the story.
10 July 2004 | by (Groningen, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Yes, Belgian humor can be quite good! This movie is the proof of this.

Urbanus is a well known comedian and the really caries this movie. The jokes with him are done really well and even hilarious at times.

It is too bad that the story brings down so much of the movie. The story feels only like a distraction from Urbanus good jokes! That can't be a good thing of course.

And is it me or is Bea Van Der Maet one hot Belgian chick? Or it could be just the short tight dresses she is wearing throughout the movie. But she really is my type of girl! It is too bad that she acts very uneven. At times she is very good but than on the other hand at times she acts extremely poorly. It was great to also see Jan Decleir in this, who is about the best actor Belgium ever had. It is too bad that his character is too small to add something to the movie.

A movie with good jokes but with a poor story and a ridiculous ending.

5/10
