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

When the crew filmed segments of a scene with a Hercules airplane taking place on a Schiphol landing strip, shooting at a British airport, they were not allowed to operate the airplane. Since the scene required the plane to drive and fly, the crew had to improvise. Some shots of the plane driving were accomplished by towing it behind a different vehicle, or simply filming the idle plane while driving past it, creating the illusion of it driving. In another scene a photograph of the plane was digitally altered to look three-dimensional, complete with computer-generated propellers. The shot of the plane taking off featured a real Hercules- many of these were landing at and taking off from the airport, and the crew simply caught one on camera. All shots of the plane actually flying used a computer-generated plane. See more »

A very nice debut for a talented movie director!
3 February 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Vet Hard, the debut of the 25 year old director Tim Oliehoek, is a definite thrill. Throughout the entire movie, you will be bombarded with nasty, but pretty effective jokes, loads of one liners and all sorts of other fun n weird stuff.

The characters are also pretty wacky, ranging from a fat woman hating tough guy, to a necrophiliac serial killer. Even though we do not really get involved with these characters, its hardly an annoyance, as the movie is pretty much focused on the action scenes. These scenes have been done very well, especially for a dutch movie, some might even say that a certain chase in this movie, has the same sort of excitement level, as amsterdamned once had with the speedboat chase. Again, even though there is a lot more heavier stuff coming from Hollywood, for dutch standards, its pretty wild.

The story isn't very original as well, yet its brought with such enthusiasm and you can see that the actors all had a great time. The little cameos of a lot of dutch celebs is fun as well, and are guaranteed some laughs.

I definitely recommend this film, as it is one of the better dutch comedies and features some great and hilarious (action) scenes.

Regarding the director Tim Oliehoek, i think we will be seeing a lot more from this guy!
