The movie is about a man trying to impress his childhood lover, although it may sound like a romantic movie, it is not. When Recep comes see's Sibel he starts to remember the old days, from there on he goes into very ridiculous lengths to impress her. The story gets a bit complicated when Recep comes across many obstacles but overcomes everything in his own funny ways. Written by

Don't be put off by despising comments; it's really funny. Watch it and have your own opinion.
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.
