Paul Verhoeven was disappointed with the outcome of the experimental setup of the movie. Although he is quoted as saying that he had a good time doing a movie in the Netherlands again, he found out during production that a talent-hunt for screenwriters and actors did not have the desired result. From the many scripts he received, there was not one single scenario that he liked in its entirety, so the final shooting script was a combination of several versions, and most of the amateur actors were replaced by professional ones. He had therefore no desire to follow-up on the experiment. See more »
Maybe sweet is the wrong word to use, especially when it comes to a movie made by Paul Verhoeven. But I really liked this one. It may be predictable (to a point), but it is a fun watch, with some really good moments. It's not PC (expected), but it's also very short, running just under an hour.
Paul wanted to stay active so he made this movie, while waiting for a bigger job to happen. That doesn't mean he just went ahead and made it fast and without planning. There is a making of on the DVD that shows you the preparation he took and how he planned a lot of things. He treated this like a feature length even though it wasn't. It's also "european", so expect nudity and other things in it
