Storyline

Bennie, a clumsy criminal who's touchy about his weight, teams up with his adoptive father's biological (serial killer) son, his employees who in his absence turned his snack-bar into a quiche bakery, a suicidal manic-depressive woman and a Yougoslavian who keeps blowing things up unintended. They need to get 300000 Euro to get Bennies father a new liver. Complicating matters are that Bennie is being stalked by gangsters who want him to pay back a debt, the employees are more interested in cooking than in criminality, nobody can communicate with the Yugoslavian, the adoptive and biological son don't get along, and everything that can go wrong does go wrong - leaving a path of damaged buildings, people and - especially - vehicles behind.

Trivia

A special camera trick was used in the movie theater scene to create the illusion of the car flying towards the camera. The camera was positioned in front of the projection screen which the car ripped through, facing away from it at a 180 degree angle. A mirror was placed in the camera's view. So, when the car ripped through the screen, the camera filmed the reflection of it in the mirror, which looked like it was flying straight at the camera. See more »

Goofs

During the chase following the bank robbery, a car crashes into another, causing a small explosion of white smoke. This smoke appears before the cars hit each other. See more »

Didn't Love It ... Didn't Hate It, Either.
12 September 2005 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

As an American, I'm not quite sure what to make of this film. It's a bit too brutal for a "zany, madcap comedy", and a bit too slapstick for a "black comedy". Also, it seems more than a bit misogynistic. I'm guessing this is a Dutch flick for "yobs". Still, for entertainment value, I can't say that I disliked it, but I'm huge Nederphile. The ending was certainly different than I expected. A few things might be lost on a foreign audience - the institution of the Dutch "snack bar", for instance, and why Bennie gets so angry when he comes back to find that it's been turned into a "Quicherie".

Mindless fun, but perhaps not one you'll want to watch with a lady friend.
