5 January 2004 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Having read lots of the books in my childhood, it was inevitable that I had to see this movie sooner or later and I wasn't disappointed. It's typically a movie for children (unlike the previously-released Minoes, which had more going for adults), but as an adult it's still very much enjoyable. The story isn't all that much to write home about, I found a lot of the scenes fairly predictable, but as I mentioned before, it's a movie for kids and they will probably enjoy the adventures of the Frisian twins. The addition of a girl to the cast surprised me at first, after all there's no such storyline in one of the books, but it worked out fine, seeing the twins show off in spite of each other to impress her. People that expect a perfect book-translation to the big screen might be disappointed, everybody else who's in for an uncomplicated movie, go see it.
