Comedic elements present, but they never coalesce
26 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie has some comedic elements with potential: a funny-looking mechanical pig that could be worth several laughs; a whole series of very interesting looking "characters" (presumably character actors)who reside in the tiny BE town and are put there to interact with the hero; an attractive hero who may have comedic potential; a reasonable budget to carry out the writer's dream (which never becomes clear); a cast of characters who appear to have acting experience. But these elements never come together into a comedy, only the vague promise of one. The characters appear ready for duty in each scene, properly costumed, sitting in decent sets...and then they never say or do anything that is funny -- even remotely funny. The movie was made in Flanders (Northern Belgium) and released amid much fanfare, and the previews showed some promise. But the humor never materializes. The picture is so bad that even a modest exercise of directorial talent could have introduced a single good joke into the film, but this does not happen -- no one steps forward to introduce anything funny -- a funny line, a funny move, anything. I viewed this in a theater of Belgian Americans, and not a single laugh was heard during the entire excruciating experience. Both the director and the writers deserve severe criticism for letting this escape the editing room, yet no editor could have saved it.
