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.

Forget all your sorrows
12 December 2001 | by (Heerlen, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Actually the only reason I wanted to see this was Georgina Verbaan the hottest girl to hit the screens, just wait till the rest of the world sees her. Now if you're looking for a flick with depth, dialogues and great acting forget this, but if you want to come out of a cinema with a feeling of "hey lets go and have some fun cause I feel great"then this is your movie. Lots of speed, romance, good looking actors and actresses who will have you smiling all the time.
