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 »
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 »
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.
