Storyline

A romantic comedy about the adventures of Nordip Doenia, a clever young Moroccan guy in The Netherlands. His parents destine him for great things, but Nordip clearly has different ideas. He takes up a simple job far below his level as a dishwasher in a big motel. There, he falls in love with Agnes, the niece of the motel owner. But Agnes faces the same parental pressure as Nordip: she is destined to take over the motel in the future, but she doesn't have ambitions for this. The love relationship between Nordip and Agnes is doomed to failure, unless Nordip can convince Agnes in going her own way, against her parent's wishes. Written by Rene Guillot

Very questionable script, but probably funny and entertaining for most of us
10 September 2005 | by (amsterdam, the netherlands) – See all my reviews

if you want to enjoy this movie, you shouldn't be bothered by a questionable script with some of the most cheesy romantic dialogue imaginable, a high-school-sitcom-cliché-over-the-top-romeo-and-Juliet-plot, a story with a lot of loose ends and very questionable acting of the two lead roles. It is however successful as a comedy, funny and entertaining, with a lot of fast paced almost Ali-G reminiscent kind of impersonations and food-fight action fun with some fast edited sequences with loud music. Just shut down your brain and don't think too much when watching this film and you will probably end up enjoying it.
