Overall not bad,but could have been funnier!
27 July 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This Dutch comedy isn't half bad,it isn't good either but what would you expect from a movie with a title like this. The story is far from original. The multicultural casting however is surprising. Of course this has been done before with a movie like "Shouf Shouf Habibi". Difference is that the focus from that movie was on Moroccan culture and this movie on several ethnic cultures. Sadly it stays flat most of the time since the jokes aren't sharp enough to make an impact. Well there is a lot of swearing that was a bit annoying and the plot was all over the place. The main characters however compensate all that with their enthusiasm. For the real acting chops you have to turn to Cahit Ölmez (Karan). Can this man act. Too bad that he didn't have more scenes. Very watchable!
