worst movie ever
30 August 2013 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is without any doubt the worst movie ever produced on this planet. If this movie was sponsored with tax payers money - which is very common in the Netherlands - than he or she responsible should be fired immediately. There are too many story lines, the jokes are bad, the characters are far from realistic. It almost looks like the makers are regarding their target group as mentally disabled patients who need to be entertained with childish jokes, it is just an insult for the interested movie watcher. It's so terribly humiliating for the Dutch film industry that I can not just understand why nobody took action when making it. De President is a perfect example of imposed multi cultural thinking in the Netherlands. If you want to see an example of a real bad movie,....go see it,otherwise, stay away as far as you can from this.
