Storyline

This movie follows the popular formula of the homonymous Dutch-Flemish TV series, and includes most of its main characters, either from the previous or the following seasons. On their first-ever holiday with her sister Angela and their arrogant friends Joyce and Maureen, at the beach in Spain (hence the title) the outspoken Janet meets Rens, who since a few years works there, rooming with his colleagues Tommy, Bjorn and Frida and 'wanna-be propper' Bart, as sexy 'propper' for the popular disco 'Costa!' - the job is to lure in customers by their sex appeal. The rivaling club 'Empire' looks set to win a dance competition, and with it too much clientèle. Rens soon falls for Janet, causing consternation and jealousy, but they need the couple as their best dancers. As usual the competition resorts to dirty tricks, but is beaten in the end.

The movie you are not supposed to like, but I did!
3 April 2001 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

As my brother always says, "you are not allowed to like a film like this". But who says life has to be taking so damned seriously? This was 95 minutes of pure entertainment. Okay, lots of teenagers just loved it, but I sat next to a guy who only came in to the theater to watch the trailer to "Lord of the Rings", and even this guy couldn´t help liking this film. He just kept that grin on his face all through the movie. No wonder this film is breaking records in the Netherlands, where it already secured itself of a spot on the TOP 10 list of Dutch films of the last 20 years. (It even beat HANNIBAL in its second week of release.)

Enjoy the dancing and the fun Ugly Duck Becomes Beautiful Swan story. Enjoy Verbaan´s clumsiness, enjoy La Schuurman´s beautiful body displayed on a giant screen, enjoy the jokes and, if you have ever been with a bunch of young people on holiday, enjoy all those instantly recognizable moments. I did.
