Just plain BAD
26 August 2008 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

...even by modern Greek cinema standards.

Childish and pompous dialogue, forced situations, mostly amateur "acting".

Makes you wonder why they even bother making this. (I'm guessing to cash in from the original's heritage and to promote certain "celebrities".) Even the previous installment (Sirines sto Egeo) was better than this, and that says A LOT.

Avoid at all costs but do watch the original "Loufa kai Parallagi" from 1984 (in which G. Kimoulis, amongst others, delivered a great performance; why he accepted to be a part of the modern adaptation is beyond me. Money problems, maybe?)

But what's even sadder (and alarming), is the fact that some people actually found this movie funny, at least according to a couple of (underaged?) reviewers here. As for the IMDb score, I'm pretty sure that most of the positive ratings originate from the people that were actually involved in the film itself.
