Storyline

To communicate, Melissa uses a small magic marker board that she wears around her neck. Melissa makes a trip to the ladies' room at the hotel De L'Europe and gets separated from her parents. Melissa wanders out of the hotel and onto the street, where she witnesses the murder of Simon Van Der Molen, the attorney representing Walter's Dutch client. Unfortunately, Melissa is spotted by the killers, who are hit man Bruno Decker and his employer Rudolph Hartman, who turns out to be Walter's client. Hartman had Van Der Molen killed to prevent Van Der Molen from revealing the side effects of Hartman's new medication, which he's marketing to Walter's firm. If Van Der Molen would have told Walter about the side effects, Walter would have declined the medication, and Hartman would ... Written by Todd Baldridge

Surprisingly humorous movie, not afraid of self-ridicule.
29 October 1999 | by (Eindhoven, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Surprising good movie. Very weird mix between humor and action.

Weird effect (especially for Dutchmen) to have a movie playing in Amsterdam, with all the 'natives' speaking English. Especially with the 'normal' Dutch terms and signs in the streets.

Lots of ridicule about Amsterdam's checkered reputation. And it isn't even that much exaggerated...
