Trivia

The father of the family was initially supposed to be a jet pilot, but the budget would only allow for a helicopter, which had to be rented out of Belgium as the Dutch army refused all cooperation. Likewise, as there was no money for jeeps and soldiers in camouflage, the crew had to make do with an old car that was painted green, filled with extras wearing sunglasses. See more »

slapstick for the dutch-speaking
27 August 2002 | by udovrSee all my reviews

Ok , It's not a work of art and sure , the Dutch movie-industry has a lot more to offer than this , but we are talking about the same year that 'Police Academy' was released in the theaters.

'Schatjes' and the sequel 'Mama is boos' was just one of those movies that was fun to watch, especially as a Belgian Dutch-speaking viewer. And when it comes to slapstick , I bow for the folks from the Low-lands. All WE had so far was 'Gaston en Leo' and 'Urbanus' (no offence to his one-man show talent of course).

I give it a 6. My highest score in this genre.
