Bracha van Doesburgh,
Because of a bad marriage of their parents, two brothers Jules (Daniel Arends) and Max (Tim Haars) made a pact never to get into a relationship with a woman. Therefore, they live a party-life in which they sleep with a different girl every day. However this changes when Jules starts to date Anna (Sylvia Hoeks) and Max falls in love with her. Can their bromance overcome this love triangle. Although the makers of this movie claim this movie is a romcom, it still has the same adolescent humour we are accustomed to with Steffen en Flip.

I was intrigued by this because of the poster at first, but then I found out that it wasn't in English. I was disappointed but I decided to give it a shot anyway.
I was thoroughly amused by this film. You can tell that the writers/directors grew up in the 80s, with all the references to 80s films (especially at the end) and also NES stuff.
Yes, the humour is crude and politically incorrect and features a lot of the language you'd find in a gangsta rap song, but nothing really worse than your average crude American comedy a la American Pie or any number of Seth Rogen films. If you don't mind that (and don't mind reading subtitles) then you will be entertained.
The main actress is also very charming, and she gives of a very cute/naughty vibe, but they kept her grounded and attainable, which helps guys relate to the main character that likes her.
In the end, this isn't a classic, but it's quite entertaining, and has a bit of a soft spot too. I think if they made an English version of this, it could do quite well - especially with the right director like Adam Mckay or Rawson Thurber. In the end, I enjoyed it, even though I had to constantly dart my eyes down to see what they were saying.
I'd like to give it a 7.5/10, but since IMDb doesn't allow that I'm going with a 7, since it's not quite an 8/10.
