To me, the movie was just 86 minutes of flat stereotypes towards both black, and white people (primarely Jews). Let's be honest, the portrayal of stereotypes can be funny as long as it's done in the right way. Which sadly, in this movie is not. The Netherlands has a fairly high tolerance level when it comes to different cultures, religions, sexual preferences etc. which in my eyes, is a good thing. But I must say I was a little surprised this movie got made and it was this "well" received. Even though the idea of an affluent Jewish kid falling for a girl who is quite the contrary isn't even that bad.
I personally felt like I was watching the same jokes over and over again: black people are poor, rude and poorly educated. Jews/white people are ignorant, but well behaved, and only care about money. Yes I get it now, but can we at least see some character development then? I guess not..
Anyway, nice try. But to me it was yet another title to add to the long list of failed Dutch movies.
