Don't be put off by despising comments; it's really funny. Watch it and have your own opinion.
16 April 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film. I had some doubts (prejudice rather) about it previously, due to a lot of people around me despising it. Therefore I haven't seen it until I saw bits of the sequel, and realised that I've really missed out on a remarkably funny movie. Yes it has elements of toilet humour, balls humour etc... But it's a comedy and it's bloody funny! The fact that some people of more "ordinary" taste in cinema might enjoy it too does not make it a lousy movie. Obviously it's not up there with the best of its genre, but it does what it says on the tin. Sahan Gokbakar has created a rather primitive character that is all but too familiar to Turkish audiences, thanks to similar movies and -what the heck- the man on the street! But the character also has a genuinely funny (not talking about the toilet humour) and sometimes surprisingly intelligent side to him.

I have a good taste in movies, but I'm not ashamed to say that I really enjoyed the 100-minutes I spent watching Recep Ivedik. I must say though, that it primarily appeals to a Turkish audience who would be familiar with the context. It may be perceived as a low-budget Borat copy by others.
