Trivia

Director Ruud van Hemert proved notoriously difficult to work with. He wasn't quickly satisfied by the acting performances of his actors, and went as far as provoking and picking fights with them to get the desired response. He also went to some extreme lengths to direct the young boys, slapping them or scaring them to get them to react correspondingly, despite the presence of the boys' father and a child psychologist on set. However, he always made up by buying them chocolate afterwards. See more »

Goofs

A 1976 Chevrolet Impala sedan is used at the end of the movie by John Gisbert and his wife to chase their kids. The number plate changes from 00-MF-60 to 27-MZ-67 between shots. See more »

Good start, very bad end and 2 top stars
18 July 2001 | by anouk-7See all my reviews

The first half of this movie is quite nice. But the second half is so terrible you wished you had not seen it. The whole movie is half comedy, half drama. From the start the adult actors play comedy but the kids act very realistic, as far as the script makes it possible (which is not very far).

The real stars are acting in the daughters (age 15 or 16?)t-shirt, the director has done everything to show them at their best. At least the half of her scenes "Madelon" is running around topless or in t-shirt and white panties. For certain that was one of the reasons it was such a big hit in Holland
