Grow up people, will you?
19 January 2006 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

OK, this is NOT the best Croatian movie of all times, but it's hardly the worst either. The story is good, it has a few jokes which are actually funny, and the acting is quite good. However, Hribar shows an amazing lack of sense for humor and rhythm and, while some scenes seem professionally done, the opening sequence, for example, is terrible. A CGI plane? Trash. It's also interesting to see how recent Croatian filmmakers make for a lack of jokes: simply insert a profanity! Amazingly, the whole theater laughed every time a character said an f-word. Even when it was clearly not intended to be funny. Weird. The script saves it and some good actors in supporting roles, but watch Bresan's films for more intelligent Croatian comedy.

P.S. I've seen some people posting about Janica Kostelic... What the hell has that to do with this???
