A collection of classic fairy tales such as Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood, with a nod and a wink to contemporary times. The film offers characters such as the 'ugly sisters' Paris and Hilton, an updated relationship between Red Riding Hood and the big bad wolf, homosexuality and corny humor. Also musical scenes in which the characters sing the songs of current pop artists as well as many popular Dutch hits. Written by
Releasing a theater piece as a film is valuable as long as it gives the theater piece more value when its filmed. In this case it doesn't. Yes the film is funny, watchable for almost every age, but it's never fantastic,it's never that you cant's stop laughing. For my daughter of 8 it was a first insight in a typical Dutch sense of humour, which was done 15 years ago much better in the weekly adventures of Theo and Theo. In fact one of the key roles of this movie is Theo from Theo and Thea.
Nice for a rainy Sunday afternoon and maybe internationally more liked because of the liberal way homosexuality is used, but not more than that. An 80 year old woman walked out the cinema with a smile, and said those good old days, where are they?
