Did You Know?


The newspaper Oliver is trying to read is, according to Ben, De Volkskrant, which is an existing Dutch morning newspaper. However, the name written at the top of the page is "Volkskrante Trouw". "Volkskrante" is not a proper Dutch word, and "Trouw" is actually a different newspaper, owned by the same publisher. See more »

complete waste of time
6 June 2012 | by (New York, United States) – See all my reviews

Normally any self respecting actor asks "Why?", not one of the actors in this complete waste of time asked this question once. They took the money and did what they were told, busy trying to look good while at it. This is a perfect example of a production that is about nothing but burning money. Starting with the writing, full of holes and completely unrealistic dialogue, but then good actors could fix that, these guys were in it only to get paid and made no effort whatsoever to raise the value of the production, so many times they just stood there waiting for the "Cut!". No one in this film believes in their character, it's all staged, shallow, unbelievable and stiff. I have many questions after watching this, all of them begin with "Why?" none of them is answered within. It's not enough to put things together by throwing money and names at it, this thing has no vision and doesn't create anything that would resemble a reality to submerse yourself in. Why would you waste your time watching this?
