This film is a quality production that takes a poke at the plastic lifestyles of the 'nouvo riche'. Three 'cute' but bored housewives spend way too much time worrying about their bodies and appearance.
This is evident by the pre-occupation of the girls with plastic surgery and Botox injections! The plot to kill their husbands is a funny adventure through the minds of three 'not so bright' amateurs trying to figure out how exactly do you kill someone when you've never done it before?
The film is reminiscent of the blockbuster 'First Wives Club' where a similar plot unfolded, except revenge was merely the removal of the husband's lifestyles!
An excellent film, bright and light hearted comedy. A pleasure to watch and listen too. A delightful change from the usual 'super clean' and emotionless boring American dialogue.
Great 'sight gags' and plenty of unique Dutch humour. Even the spoken English is a laugh!
It could do with English subtitles though, as this would appeal to a wider audience and distribution.
